My sisters, daughter in laws, mother ( a bit unwieldy) works for this distributor & she just brought my sis 2 big bags over the weekend.

Luckily sis hadn't opened them yet but she's like "They look so good." She did throw them out.

What a shame.

The plant where it happened, they ran both raw and roasted nuts through the same machinery Salmonella can live on raw nuts but is killed by the roasting process. That is so stupid and sloppy. What a shame that a whole year's crop is ruined. Just like the tomatoes (turned out to be jalapenos), spinach, peanuts, etc, etc. All that good food gone to waste and companies closed and employees loosing their livelihoods.

Ditto for me. I'm still standing (or sitting, as you will...).

Oh no...Salmonella....everyone get scared...lol. The media scare tatics are hilarious. Its nothing but a stomach flu. As I said in another post they are trying to scare us so they can get away with passing the monsanto bill aka "food safety bill"
