According to a press release by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued on February 1, the possible presence of Salmonella prompted Braga Organic Farms to recall its pistachios voluntarily. Salmonella infection may be extremely dangerous, especially to young children and the elderly. Fortunately, no adverse illnesses in connection with these products have been reported at this time.
The pistachios were available through online sales nationwide, and the FDA discovered the Salmonella contamination after a routine test of a one-pound package bought online. Symptoms of Salmonella infection are vomiting, bloody diarrhea, fever, nausea, and abdominal pain, according to the FDA. Worse cases of Salmonella infection may include aneurysm, endocarditis, and arthritis.
The complete information on the recalled product is provided on the FDA website. Consumers are warned not to consume the product.
If you or a family member suffered adverse health effects after consuming these pistachios, speak with our defective food product attorneys at Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®. Call our Wisconsin offices now at (414) 271-0900.
