Hy-Vee recalls store brand pistachios

Friday, April 10, 2009 | 8:59 a.m. CDT

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — Grocery store chain Hy-Vee says it is voluntarily recalling 16-ounce packages and 1.5-ounce tubes of Hy-Vee pistachios.

Hy-Vee says in a press release Thursday that the recall is related to pistachios distributed by California-based Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella Inc.

Setton Pistachio is currently recalling the nuts due to potential salmonella contamination.

Hy-Vee pistachios are sold in stores in Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota and Minnesota.

Hy-Vee says there have been no reported cases of illness related to this recall.
