WASHINGTON (WAVY) — Diamond of California has issued a recall for macadamia nuts after a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) lab found that a package of nuts contained Salmonella.

The recall affects Diamond’s Chopped Macadamia Nuts and Macadamia Halves & Pieces with “best before” dates between Nov. 16, 2017 and Dec. 7, 2017.

Officials say Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children. People infected with Salmonella can experience nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

The FDA says there have not yet been any reported illnesses.

Anyone who has bought either of these brands can contact Diamond for a full refund either online at http://diamondfoods.com/contact/ or by calling 503-364-0399.
