Salmonella Outbreak in 9 States Linked to Pistachios

Wonderful Pistachios may not be so wonderful anymore.

Pistachios have come to the forefront as the newest culprit in the latest Salmonella outbreak news. At least 11 people fell ill to Salmonella after eating what are thought to be contaminated pistachios.

The CDC reports that cases were reported in 9 different states, with Arizona and Washington both reporting two cases each.

The contaminated nuts have been traced to Paramount Farms, which is located in California. Nuts from this farm are outsourced to both Trader Joe's and Wonderful Pistachio brands, which means cutting a huge loss if all products have to be recalled.

On Wednesday, Wonderful Pistachios voluntarily recalled several of its products.

The news comes, ironically, several days after World Pistachio Day.

Wonderful Pistachios was very excited to celebrate:

Cases of Salmonella were reported from the end of last December until as recently as last month. The CDC warned in a report:

"Illnesses that occurred after February 11, 2016 might not yet be reported due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill and when the illness is reported. This takes an average of 2 to 4 weeks."

The outbreak is still under active investigation.
