Oregon Firm Recalls Hazelnuts Due to Potential Salmonella Contamination

Harry and David, the Oregon-based purveyor of food and fruit gifts, recently announced that it is voluntarily recalling raw, shelled hazelnut kernels sold in their store in Medford, Oregon, due to concerns of potential Salmonella contamination. The hazelnuts were supplied by Evonuk Oregon Hazelnuts.

The company's release noted that 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.
