International Foodsource, LLC Issues a Voluntary Recall of Various Raw Pistachios Products Due to Possible Salmonella Risk

From the FDA on February 12, 2015 - International Foodsource, LLC Issues a Voluntary Recall of Various Raw Pistachios Products due to Possible Salmonella Risk.
The products were distributed to food service and retail stores nationally.
The affected products can be identified by:

Product IFS Lot Number Weight Best by Date UPC
Bulk Raw Whole Pistachio 80% VP 76114 (Sam International Lot# 102914) 30 LBS Boxes 4/29/16 N/A
Valued Naturals Raw Pistachio Kernels 79249 5 oz Bags 08/10/16 790429241428
IFS Club Bag Pistachio Raw Shelled 80% Wholes 78634 3 LBS Bags 7/16/16 790429243026
IFS Web Bulk Pistachio - Shelled 80% Whole 78998 30 LBS Boxes 07/30/16 790429239630

This was brought to our attention by FDA after their contract testing laboratory analysis revealed the presence of Salmonella in one of the 19 retail 5oz bags of Valued Naturals Raw Pistachio Kernels, Lot 79249. As a precaution, additional products are being recalled as they may be contaminated since they were packed from the master lot that came to our facility. We are working closely with FDA to determine the cause of this situation.

Consumers who have purchased this recalled product should not consume it. They should return it to the point of purchase. Consumers with questions should call Customer Service at 973-361-7044, 8:15 am – 4:30 pm, EST, Monday through Friday.
