Harris Teeter recalls pistachios

Posted April 11, 2009

— A North Carolina-based grocery chain with stores in eight states has voluntarily recalled some of its packages of pistachio nuts after a supplier indicated that some may be contaminated with salmonella.

Harris Teeter announced Saturday that its recall was limited to 12-oz. packages of its "Harris Teeter Natural Roasted & Salted Pistachios." The products contain the UPC code: 007203653117.

The items may be returned for a full refund.

The company's California-based supplier, Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc., temporarily shut down after recalling more than 2 million pounds of potentially tainted nuts.

Harris Teeter's Web site says it operates 176 retail stores in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, Maryland, Delaware and Washington, D.C.

    Why was Bush opposing regulations that required companies to track their product from the field to the grocery bin? It actually saves $$ when something like this happens...which is quite frequent. Safe food is just...ummm...kind of important...IMO, that is. You?
