Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella Clarifies Identification Codes of Recalled Wholesale Products
The April 6 voluntary recall includes all roasted shelled pistachios and roasted in-shell pistachios from the 2008 crop (and a small amount from the 2007 crop that was packaged alongside the 2008 crop) due to potential contamination with the Salmonella organism, as well as raw shelled pistachios from the 2008 crop (and a small amount from the 2007 crop that was packaged alongside the 2008 crop) that are not subsequently roasted prior to retail sale. Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella’s raw in-shell pistachio shipments were NOT affected by the recall.
For bulk packages received by wholesale customers, products with either “7” or “8” as the 4th digit of the FMO number, and packaged between Julian dates 245 through 366 and 001 through 084 and shipped after September 1, 2008, are included in the recall. Wholesale customers should check their stocks to determine if they have any of the affected products on hand.
If wholesale customers do have products covered by the April 6 recall, they should discontinue distributing them and contact the company at 559-535-6050 to make arrangements for the return or appropriate destruction of the affected products. If recalled products were distributed to other firms that further mixed, repackaged or distributed the bulk products, those customers should be informed of the recall and should contact FDA.

The product information subject to the on-going recall and provided in the April 6th voluntary recall tables is correct, remains unchanged and can be viewed on www.settonfarms.com.
The Company is also sending clarification letters to its wholesale customers who received recalled bulk products that may have these identification codes. Wholesale customers can contact the Company at 559-535-6050 with any questions they may have.
