Bazzini’s Pistachio Recall
On October 6, 2018, Bazzini LLC of Allentown, Pennsylvania announced a voluntary recall for 4,000 pounds of pistachio nut products that could be contaminated with Salmonella. No illnesses have been linked to the pistachios.
What Pistachios Were Recalled?
The recall only involves the following products:
- Bazzini’s Roasted and Salted Colossal Natural Pistachios
- Bazzini’s Super Colossal Natural Pistachios
- Bazzini’s Rams Head Natural In-Shell Pistachios
The recalled pistachios were distributed to retailers in New York, New Jersey, Vermont, Massachusetts, Washington DC, and Virginia.

What is the Problem?
The recall was announced after the company’s routine sampling program detected a positive test for Salmonella in a finished product. The pistachios were received from one of Bazzini’s suppliers.
Salmonella Food Poisoning
Food poisoning infections with Salmonella can result in a serious or even deadly illness. The symptoms of a Salmonella infection may include fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain for 4-7 days after eating the food.
