Some Trader Joes’ Whole Cashews Recalled Due to Salmonella

By Hamodia Staff


Some lots of “Trader Joes Nuts – 50% Less Sodium Roasted & Salted Whole Cashews” were recalled Monday, after Salmonella bacteria were discovered.

The affected lot numbers are: T12139, T12140, T12141, and T12142.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, nausea, vomiting abdominal pain and other symptoms. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The product was sold in the following states: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Louisiana, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, and Washington State at Trader Joe’s locations.

No illnesses have been reported to date.

Lot numbers can be seen in the pictured area.
