Hazelnut Recall

Posted by on Fri, Dec 18, 2009 at 1:20 PM

hazelnuts Newburg, Ore. company Willamette Shelling is recalling 114,350 pounds of shelled raw hazelnuts. Both the Eureka and Arcata Co-ops carry them in their bulk food departments.

According to a press release from North Coast Co-op Merchandiser Ron Sharp, the nuts could be contaminated with Salmonella, a nasty organism that can cause fatal infections in young children, the elderly or anyone who's immuno-compromised.

Here's the scary disclosure:

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. 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.

If you have any of the bum nuts, take 'em back to the Co-op customer service desk.
