Makes a Move on Food Safety

Pistachio Industry Sets Up Website To Clear Companies

Source of Article:  http://www.perishablepundit.com/

 

The pistachio industry has set up a Website at PistachioRecall.Org to keep the world informed of which brands are NOT implicated in the salmonella issue:

The CAL-PURE co-op of California pistachio growers (“CAL-PURE”) and the Western Pistachio Association (“WPA”) have created this consumer website to list the brands reported as not containing any pistachio products from Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc, which has initiated a voluntary recall of pistachios due to potential contamination with the Salmonella organism.

The vast majority of pistachio products and foods containing pistachio products do not contain pistachios from Setton. A list of products not containing pistachios from Setton is set forth in the side bar. For a list of products affected by the recall, consumers should visit www.fda.gov/pistachios/. Consumers should go to company and brand websites for further information about specific products.

CAL-PURE and the WPA continue to work closely with regulators and industry leaders to monitor the progress and scope of the voluntary recall, with consumer health and safety as their primary concern. Given the fluid nature of the recall, this website will be revised and amended on an ongoing basis.

The website lists the following brands as “not implicated” in the salmonella issue:

It is a good effort, but a lot of the consumer confusion revolves around manufactured products. What brands of pistachio ice cream did not buy pistachios from Setton? Perhaps the industry could expand the Web site to focus on these more problematic manufacturers.
