Here we go again….FDA says to avoid pistachios amid salmonella scare


Seriously? Are you effing kidding me??????? The FDA SUCKS, there I said it!

Federal food safety officials warned Monday that consumers should stop eating all foods containing pistachios while they figure out the source of a possible salmonella contamination.

Still reeling from the national salmonella outbreak in peanuts, the Food and Drug Administration said central California-based Setton Farms, the nation’s second-largest pistachio processor, was voluntarily recalling all of its 2008 crop — more than 1 million pounds of nuts.

“Our advice to consumers is that they avoid eating pistachio products, and that they hold onto those products,” said Dr. David Acheson, assistant commissioner for food safety. “The number of products that are going to be recalled over the coming days will grow, simply because these pistachio nuts have then been repackaged into consumer-level containers.” Yahoo News By GARANCE BURKE, Associated Press Writer Garance Burke, Associated Press Writer FRESNO, Calif.
