June 26, 2015 — Whole Foods has recalled pre-packaged raw macadamia nuts because they may be contaminated with Salmonella.
Whole Foods is having problems with Salmonella in their raw macadamia nuts. The store issued recalls on February 3 and again on April 17, making today’s recall at least the third from Whole Foods this year.
Three companies in Ohio and Texas also recalled macadamia nuts last month — Kanan Enterprises, Texas Star Nut and Food Co., and Texas Pecan Co..
No illnesses have been reported.
The macadamia nuts were labeled as “Whole Foods Market Raw Macadamia Nuts” and were packaged in 11-oz plastic tubs. The products had best-by dates of March 19, 2016 through June 21, 2016 and were marketed with UPC code of 0-76958-62059-1.
The contamination was discovered during routine testing conducted by an FDA-contracted laboratory.
Healthy adults who are infected with Salmonella typically experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain for a few days. However, in some cases, the infection can become much more serious. The FDA warns:
“In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.”
