Firm Press Release

Mahina Mele Farms, LLC is expanding a voluntary recall of its macadamia nut products within expiry after FDA testing found Salmonella in macadamia nuts. One sample from LOT 30 was found to be positive for Salmonella Give.While we are not aware of any further positive samples, Mahina Mele Farms feels it is in the best interest of public health to voluntarily recall ALL lots currently on the market, until the source of the contamination can be identified.

Salmonella is 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.

Mahina Mele Farms is working with retailers to pull products from store shelves. To date no illnesses have been reported in connection with these products. Continue reading
