GRAND BK CORP. of MASPETH, NEW YORK is recalling 450 CASES OF GOODIES CASHEW RAW 9OZ, because it has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella, an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The product was labeled as “GOODIES BY NATURE RAW CASHEWS 9oz.” and was packed in 9oz. clear plastic tubs. The recalled product has sell-by dates of 04.29.2016 and 05.02.2016 and a UPC code of 846034010055.

Recalled items were sold in NY, NJ, PA, VA, MD, and GA in “H Mart” retail stores.

No illnesses have been reported to-date. Based upon routine testing conducted by an FDA-contracted laboratory, it was determined that the raw cashew tested positive for Salmonella.
