Some Fisher chopped walnuts, pecans recalled over possible Salmonella

Dec. 31, 2014

An Illinois company is recalling some packages of Fisher brand nuts over possible Salmonella contamination.

The affected products are 8-oz. plastic bags of Fisher Chopped Walnuts and 8-oz. plastic bags of Fisher Pecan Cookie Pieces, which are finely chopped pecans.

They may have been sold online or at stores in 9 states: Arkansas, Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas.

Salmonella bacteria can cause serious illness, especially in young children, the elderly, or people with compromised immune system. Symptoms include fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare cases, it can be fatal.
