Hazelnuts Recalled Due to Salmonella Risk

Whole Foods Announces Recall Due to Possible Salmonella Contamination

Recall Is Precautionary continued...

Willamette Shelling says it is recalling all hazelnuts processed at its facility from Oct. 12 through Nov. 25, 2009. The company says some of its products were returned to Oregon processors and a Canadian processor, which distributed some of the hazelnuts. It says unshelled hazelnuts are not affected by the current recall.

Willamette says all products subject to recall were packed in 25-pound and 50-pound corrugated boxes with lot code numbers 296091A, 299091A, 300091A, VH3696BO, and 310091A.

Willamette's announcement on the FDA web site urges processors that used its facility in 2009 to return the products to the company in Newberg, Ore.

Evonuk Oregon Hazelnuts of Eugene, Ore., which announced a recall Dec. 18 of 6,712.5 pounds of raw and dry roasted hazelnut kernels, says the product was processed at Willamette.

No action has been taken by the FDA except its posting of press releases from Whole Foods Market, Willamette Shelling and Evonuk. The FDA says it issues such press releases "as a service to consumers, the media, and other interested parties."
