Core Tip: Crescent Specialty Foods, Inc. of Everett, WA is voluntarily recalling 6 oz. bags of Crescent Pistachio Raw
 Crescent Specialty Foods, Inc. of Everett, WA is voluntarily recalling 6 oz. bags of Crescent Pistachio Raw, UPC Code: 8 95296 00103 5 because they have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which 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, 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.
 
No illnesses have been reported to date.
 
The product was distributed to retail stores and on-line stores in Oregon and Washington.
