Ding, dang. I love pistachios and I am pistachio-ed off at the recent voluntary recall of the salty nuts. Just received word from Aimee Deputy, the shopping sheriff at Central Market:
Due to the recent FDA recommendation that consumers should avoid eating pistachio products, Central Market H-E-B is voluntarily removing any product containing pistachio nuts from our stores until further FDA verification has been received.
Central Market H-E-B has elected to remove these products strictly as a precautionary measure, even though we have received numerous affidavits from various vendors stating their products do not contain ingredients from the FDA-identified Salmonella source.
Central Market H-E-B is removing these products as part of our ongoing commitment to food safety and the safety of our customers.
