  • Trader Joe’s takes back Contaminated Cashew Nuts in a Wholesale Manner

Trader Joe’s has taken back its contaminated cashew nuts in a wholesale manner. The salmonella disease that had been rife in the packets of nuts will no longer be a public hazard.

The green grocers Trader Joe’s has recalled its scads of cashew nuts packets after there were chances of people contracting salmonella poisoning due to their consumption.

The California company sends its cashew nuts packets to about a dozen states across the nation. Places such as Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania were just a few of the regions the cashew nuts were sent to.  

The company has issued a warning concerning the raw cashew nuts. Especially those packets bearing a July 17th, 2016 expiry date are to be shunned like the plague.

An inquiry is being carried out regarding the salmonella outbreak. And sales of the raw cashew nuts have been curtailed completely. The recall of the raw cashew nuts occurred after the supplier said that they might be infected with salmonella bacteria.

Store shelves were cleansed of the packets of nuts. And while no sickness due to eating the raw nuts has occurred so far, it is better to be safe than sorry. 

Trader Joe’s is specifically on the hunt for such packets that bear the expiry date of July 17th, 2016. The company bosses have warned people to never even consider eating the contents of the packets.

To do so would be inviting trouble in their lives. Nobody wants anyone to get hurt by contracting the symptoms of salmonella sickness. The packets of nuts can be brought to the stores for a refund anytime.

Salmonella is a serious troublemaker. It can cause everything from food poisoning to typhoid fever. The recall will take place across 30 states. This will save so many people from bouts of illness due to salmonella poisoning.
