Trader Joe’s Recalls Walnuts for Salmonella

Trader Joe’s has recalled five different varieties of walnuts due to the fact they may contain salmonella. Trader Joe’s has currently suspended the sale of the nuts and has removed them from store shelves. The affected nuts include:

-Trader Joe’s Nuts Raw California Walnut Pieces (16 ounces)

-Trader Joe’s Nuts Raw California Walnut Baking Pieces (16 ounces)

The products also have a “best buy” date between October 15, 2015 and December 1, 2015.

Salmonella causes illness in nearly 1 million Americans every year and results in around 380 deaths. It can also cause serious and fatal infections in young children, seniors, pregnant women and those with weakened immune systems. Symptoms of infections typically begin to show at 12 and 72 hours, and include diarrhea, cramps, nausea, vomiting and fever.

Just a week before, the company recalled 16 oz packages of cinnamon almonds that had undeclared peanuts due to allergy risks.

Customers should contact Trader Joe’s directly regarding the recall at (626) 599-3817.
