Wegmans Recalls Pine Nuts Over Salmonella Concerns

The upscale grocery store chain says the pine nuts, imported from Turkey by Sunrise Commodities of Englewood Cliffs, N.J., have been linked to an outbreak of gastrointestinal illness from salmonella.

The recall only applies to Turkish pine nuts sold in bulk; the company called some customers who  bought them.

The recall was initiated as a result of a multi-state outbreak investigation by the Centers for Disease  Control and Prevention.

The CDC says a total of 42 people have been sickened.

Wegmans has 79 supermarket stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, and Massachusetts.
