BazziniI LLC of Allentown, PA out of an abundance of caution, is recalling 4,000 pounds of Roasted and Salted Colossal Natural, Super Colossal Natural and Rams Head Natural In Shell Pistachios received from one of its suppliers because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.  The recall is being initiated voluntarily and no illnesses have been reported to date.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. 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.

Affected product was distributed through retail sale, direct delivery, and mail order in New York, New Jersey, Vermont, Massachusetts, Washington DC, and Virginia.
