Oregon hazelnut grower, Willamette Filbert Growers, has recalled several thousand pounds of hazelnuts on account of Salmonella being found in a lot of shelled hazelnuts that tested positive during product sampling by the FDA. The lot that tested positive was not released, but, any products that came in contact with the contaminated lot are being recalled. No reports of illness thus far. Hopefully it stays that way.
