(WFLA) — Wonderful Pistachios announced that it is voluntarily recalling a limited number of flavors and sizes of in-shell and shelled pistachios due to a risk of Salmonella contamination.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, some Wonderful Pistachios products may be linked to an outbreak of Salmonellosis. The products were distributed through several retailers nationwide and can be identified by a 13-digit lot code number that can be found on the lower back or bottom panel of the package. See recalled package codes here and images below.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Others may experience fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Consumers should return these packages to the store they were purchased at for a refund. Or may return these products to Wonderful Pistachios for a refund by sending the product back to Wonderful Pistachios, 13646 Hwy 33, Lost Hills, CA 93249. Consumers should discard the nuts prior to returning the entire package or lot code panel to their retail store.
