Pistachio Warning: Salmonella Can Be Fatal to Young Children

Pistachio nuts in and out of the shell

As you may know, I work for Consumer Reports as their social media reporter. I so appreciate how they stay on top of food-recall issues.

The Consumer Reports Health blog has been reporting on the Food and Drug Administration's recent recalls of pistachio nuts. The FDA is now recommending that consumers avoid eating pistachios until further notice due to the risk of salmonella.

Salmonella can cause serious — and sometimes fatal — infections in young children, elderly people and anyone with a weakened immune system.

A number of illnesses have been reported that may be associated with pistachios. We don't yet know whether any of the salmonella strains found in the pistachio products are linked to an outbreak.

Keep checking the Consumer Reports Health blog for updates. Better safe than sorry on this one.
