Whether plain or with a little salt, cashews are damn tasty. But one way they're not tasty? With a touch of salmonella? That's why Trader Joe's has voluntarily recalled bags of raw cashew pieces after concerns they're contaminated with the unpleasant bacteria, which causes symptoms like fever, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea.
In an announcement on its website, Trader Joe's said its supplier alerted the company that "one specific lot" of Trader Joe's Raw Cashew Pieces (barcode number 00505154) could be contaminated with salmonella. Packages from that lot are labeled "BEST BEFORE 07.17.2016TF4" and were distributed in the following states: Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin, as well as Washington D.C.
