Bad news, TJ's fans. Trader Joe's is warning of possible salmonella contamination in their pistachios. Trader Joe's is recalling their in-shell, roasted pistachios nationwide due to possible salmonella contamination, according to a release. Your nuts are at risk if the 'best if used by date' is between October 27, 2016 and November 4, 2016. There are three versions being recalled:

  • Trader Joe’s Dry Roasted & Unsalted Pistachios (UPC 0007 9990)
  • Trader Joe’s Dry Roasted & Salted Pistachios (UPC 0007 9983)
  • Trader Joe’s 50% Less Salt Roasted & Salted Pistachios (UPC 0011 1348)

These pistachios come in 16 oz. plastic bags, and you will find the code information on the back and bottom of the package. If you have any of these products, you can return them to Trader Joe's for a full refund.
Trader Joe's says they have removed the nuts from their shelves and has stopped selling them while an investigation takes place.

So far, no one has reported becoming ill. If you have questions, you can call Trader Joe's customer relations at (626)599-3817.
