Consumer Alert: Target Macadamia Nut Recall

Consumerist reports that raw macadamia nuts sold at retailers including Target, HyVee, Pear’s Gourmet, and grocery stores that carry Western Family brands have been recalled because they may be contaminated with the Salmonella bacteria.

The Food and Drug Administration was performing random sampling and found Salmonella present in a sample from the company that packages all of these products, Marathon Ventures in Nebraska.

At Target, the macadamia nuts in question were sold under their in-house Market Pantry brand (as shown here). If you have any question about your own macadamia nuts or about the recall, you can contact Marathon Ventures at (402) 934-8223 or by email at
