FRESNO, Calif. (AP) New York officials say they found no traces of salmonella in a Long Island pistachio processing plant whose sister company sparked a nationwide recall of the nut last week.

New York State Agriculture Commissioner Patrick Hooker said Friday that inspectors received negative results on nine environmental swabs of Commack, N.Y.-based Setton International Foods, Inc. and eight sample tests of company food products.

The probe was conducted in tandem with an investigation into Setton's sister firm in California, where federal food safety officials found traces of the bacteria inside the plant earlier this week.

Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc. has temporarily closed after recalling more than 2 million pounds of potentially tainted nuts.
