Blue Diamond Growers recalls Almonds after testing finds Salmonella

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Blue Diamond Growers of Sacramento, CA, is recalling nearly 350,000 pounds of almonds because of potential Salmonella contamination.

The firm’s internal sampling identified a positive Salmonella result on the implicated lots of products.

The recall was initiated on Aug. 5  and is ongoing. There is concern that some products may still be on consumers’ shelves.

The recalled products were distributed in California, Colorado and Illinois. They were also distributed internationally in Germany, Morocco and Canada.

Recalled products:

# Product Description Recall Number Classification Code Information Product Quantity Reason for Recall
1 Whole Brown Almonds (bulk) F-1559-2022 Class I Batch 1000223917 of Lot 186224001, Batch 1000223941 of Lot 187224001, Batch 1000223938 of Lot 187224001, Batch 1000223977 of Lot 188224001, Batch 1000224058 of Lot 191224001, Batch 1000224066 of Lot 191224001, Batch 1000224071 of Lot 192224001, Batch 1000224159 of Lot 193224001, Batch 1000224193 of Lot 194224001, Batch 1000224233 of Lot 195224001  347,650 lbs Firm’s internal sampling identified a positive Salmonella result on the implicated lots.

Consumers should not consume, serve or use, and businesses should not sell or distribute the recalled almonds. Recalled products should be thrown out or returned to the location where they were purchased.

About Salmonella infections
Food contaminated with Salmonella bacteria does not usually look, smell, or taste spoiled. Anyone can become sick with a Salmonella infection. Infants, children, seniors and people with weakened immune systems are at higher risk of serious illness because their immune systems are fragile, according to the CDC.

Anyone who has consumed any of the recalled products and developed symptoms of Salmonella infection should seek medical attention. Sick people should tell their doctors about the possible exposure to Salmonella bacteria because special tests are necessary to diagnose salmonellosis. Salmonella infection symptoms can mimic other illnesses, frequently leading to misdiagnosis.

Symptoms of Salmonella infection can include diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within 12 to 72 hours after eating contaminated food. Otherwise, healthy adults are usually sick for four to seven days. In some cases, however, diarrhea may be so severe that patients require hospitalization.

Older adults, children, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems, such as cancer patients, are more likely to develop severe illness and serious, sometimes life-threatening conditions.

Some people get infected without getting sick or showing any symptoms. However, they may still spread the infections to others.
