Yet Another Recall....Hazelnuts (aka Filberts)

Oh..dang. I LOVE Hazelnuts.
The FDA has announced that 114,350 pounds of shelled hazelnuts have been recalled due to concerns that they may be contaminated with Salmonella. The nuts were marketed by Willamette Shelling of Newberg, Oregon. To this point, no illnesses have been reported. - Food Poison Journal

The nuts were processed by Willamette Filbert Growers in Newberg, which has been in business since 1976. General Manager Ben Mitchell said it's the first time the plant has ever been involved in such an incident.

No illnesses have been reported, but the company is voluntarily recalling 29,861 pounds of shelled hazelnuts and organic hazelnuts processed between Oct. 21 and Nov. 25. Some were sold in Oregon, but most were part of two big shipments to California. -
