The American Pecan Co., a Texas-based pecan company, announced a recall today of its small, medium, and large sized plastic bags of pecans.  The company is recalling the product due to potential contamination by Salmonella bacteria.  

American Pecan Co. said today that its one-pound bags of shelled pecans were sold to walk-up customers at their Yancey location in south-central Texas, as well as to mail-order customers in Texas, New York and Massachusetts.  The Salmonella contamination was discovered by the Food and Drug Administration during routine sampling and testing.

The company says no illnesses have been reported, but it has stopped producing and distributing the product.
