Just this April, Kraft destroyed all possibly contaminated nut products. Setton, the source of the pistachios that had been positive for the diarrhea-causing illness, has also been destroying batches that had been the cause of the salmonella scare.
Just like the food scare from China a few years ago, it appears that the US government was just as harsh to its own producers who sacrificed public health for millions of dollars. The willingness of these companies to destroy their own products was a good sign that local laws were still effective.
Everyone’s hoping that pistachios would become safer in the coming months. How about you, have you eaten a Kraft-produced pistachio nut lately?
