HONOLULU (AP) - Bags of pistachios made by a Hilo company are being recalled for possible salmonella contamination.

Hawaii News Now reported yesterday the Food and Drug Administration says batches of Hilo Products Roasted & Salted Natural Pistachios may carry the bacteria.

The bags in question were distributed by Los Angeles-based Torn and Glasser, Inc. to Hawaii, California and Arizona.

Each bag has a lot code, 0923, that can be found on the back corner next to the seal.

Customers who have purchased the nuts are advised not to eat them. They can return them for a full refund.

The company has also set up an information line at 1-800-282-6887.

According to the FDA, salmonella bacteria can cause severe infections that can turn fatal.
