The FDA recalled three different kinds of pistachios this week for salmonella. [Consumer Reports Safety Blog] (Photo: ?o??ƒx™)
This salmonella thing is getting to be even more annoying than Nadya Suleman.
@calquist: I’ll take salmonella over her.
@HiPwr: that’s the octopus, right?
Oh, no, these are the best nuts in the entire world.
I’m craving pistachios now
those would be really good right now. Makes me want to head over to Costco to grab a giant bag of em.
I think I want to risk the salmonella.
@CubeRat: Just picked up a bag of their salt and peppered flavored ones last night on my way home. It’s been nice knowing… well none of you, but I imagine my friends will miss me.
@projoe1979: I love the salt and pepper ones. I’m sure this recall will have the same effect as the peanut butter one. It’ll make me eat tons of the forbidden stuff.
@edwardso: Just called my Trader Joe’s, cuz I got a phat bag o’ pistachios last night. “Are they… Safe?” I asked.
“Ours are fine – g’head and eat yourself sick!”, he heartily replied.
Then we both chuckled at his poor choice of enthusiastic expression.
@CubeRat: THEY ARE CRACK in nut form.
God. How hard is it to keep your f’ing facility clean??
dammit.. i’ve been munching on pistachios for 3 days… i’m going to die.
American=lazy, corrupt and incompetent. Looks like I have to stop eating cashews ” just incase”. I want my bank to get salmonella.
@LegoMan322: You’ve got a point there. Americans need to be more like the Chinese.
@HiPwr: Oh yeah, sure. No rights, no real freedoms, officials more corrupt than a Byzantine, odd lethal chemicals in the food, and lets not forget if you’re executed there they bill your family for the bullet.
On the other hand, they DO machine gun drug smugglers en masse at the stadium.
So you’re not going to love my nuts?
@MrPibbistheGreatestSodaEver: Only if they are tongue flavor. ;P
I have a bag of Setton Farms Pistachios in my cabinet right now. They’re Kosher. Does that mean they’re safer?
@SnaLanKoat_GitEmSteveDave: It means they were made by illegal immigrants, and have traces of meth from the lab in the back of the plant: [consumerist.com]
@ChuckECheese: Mmmmmm, Meth.
I say we send a couple bags to AIG.
My local Walgreens has been selling 2 bags for 7 bucks, they just lowered the same bags to 2 for 5 bucks…
Makes you wonder….
I just bought some emerald peanuts the other day. The’re packaged in California. Are my nuts okay?
Don’t these places process all kinds of nuts in the same place?
To hell with these recall panics. I just opened a big bag of Planter’s pistachios. They’re damn good and worth the risk.
@DanR2: Update: Still alive.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! This damned salmonella is taking all of my favorite snacks away from me!
This seriously makes me want to eat pistachios.
What, did Peanut Corporation of America just think they could change their sign and no one would notice?
Damn…I love these little nuts. WHY GOD WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY.
Bought three bags of this brand from Woot! a couple of weeks ago. I dropped them a note asking if they knew about this and if their product was included. They assured me that they were NOT included, but also gave me a full refund just in case I wasn’t comfortable with the possibility of contamination.
Now THAT’S customer service!
Bought a bag of pistachios, cashews, and almonds at Aldi yesterday. Ate half of it while watching “House” last night.
So far: no ill effects. There: my teeny data point du jour.
@ElizabethD: it can take 2-4 days before you become asymptomatic and you start crapping blood out of your starfish.
To “Head them off at the pass” eat a couple containers of live culture yogurt to buff up your gut bacteria levels.
@ElizabethD: With all of the new infections salmonella has evolved into a permanent infection with no symptoms. Soon it will infiltrate your brain, subtly affecting your actions to maximize transmission to others. I’m optimistic/apprehensive that it will result in more butt sex.
Thank you all for these words of encouragement! I never liked butt sex, to be honest, but perhaps the pistachios will usher in a new age of adventure for me.
Is it a coincidence that there is an article about butt wiping right below this? because that was probably the problem, some migrant wiping his butt with his hands rather than t-p.
The article has a list of the affected products. Don’t buy from that list and you’ll be fine. It’s kind of like playing Russian roullette with a revolver that has 499,999,999,999 empty chambers. Worry more about being attacked by a rabid donkey.
@undefined: Here I thought it was because of the obscene need one will have for said toilet paper should one contract salmonella…trust me, it ain’t pretty.
Salmonella = bird poo. How hard is it to keep bird poo out of the food supply?!?
