TERRA BELLA, Calif. (AP) - Officials are investigating a central California plant that processed pistachios tied to nationwide recalls of trail mix and bagged nuts because of possible salmonella contamination.
The California Department of Public Health said Monday it was investigating Setton Farms in Tulare County.
Officials say Setton sent its pistachios to the Georgia Nut Co., which recalled its Kraft Back to Nature Nantucket Blend trail mix on Wednesday.
Grocery operator Kroger Co. said the California firm also supplied the line of pistachios it recalled because of possible salmonella contamination. Those nuts were sold in 31 states. No illnesses have been reported.
Setton Farms and the Food and Drug Administration did not immediately respond to calls for comment.
