Harris Teeter recalling pistachios

The NC based grocery chain has voluntarily recalled some of its packages of pistachio nuts. Harris Teeter says its recall is limited to 12 oz. packages of its "Harris Teeter Natural Roasted & Salted Pistachios."

The items may be returned for a full refund.

On March 30, federal food safety officials warned consumers should stop eating all foods containing pistachios while they figure out the source of a possible salmonella contamination.

The company's California-based supplier, Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc., temporarily shut down after recalling more than 2 million pounds of potentially tainted nuts.

Setton Farms is owned by the Commack, New York-based Setton International Foods, Inc., which sells nuts, dried fruit, edible seed, chocolate and yogurt coated candies.

Harris Teeter's Web site says it operates 176 retail stores in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, Florida, Maryland, Delaware and Washington, D.C.
