The pistachio recall was issued on March 31, 2009, for all nuts processed at a plant in California. The inshell and shelled pistachios were distributed to a number of different manufacturers who sold them to the public as individual packages of pistachios and in a number of other products, such as ice cream, trail mix, cakes and mixed nuts.
