Pistachio Salmonella Warning Leads To Major Recall

A major recall Tuesday that affects Kentucky. The Food and Drug Administration is warning Americans to stop eating pistachios.

They're concerned about a possible salmonella contamination coming from a central California plant. Nuts from that plant ended up in trail mixes and bags of nuts in 31 states, including Kentucky.

Kroger is one of the stores involved in the recall.

Two people have complained of illness, but an official link to the pistachios hasn't been confirmed.

Public health officials say pistachios processed at Setton Farms may have been tied to nationwide recalls.

Food Safety Officials were investigating the central California plant which describes itself as the second-largest pistachio processor in the United States.

A spokesperson for the FDA says Setton Farms will recall a total of about 1 million pounds of pistachio products.
