      Supermarkets pulled pistachios and some pistachio-laden foods from their
      shelves Tuesday, moves resulting from this week's Food and Drug
      Administration warning to consumers not to eat the nuts because they could
      be tainted with salmonella.

      The FDA is scrambling to prevent a repeat of a recent salmonella outbreak
      from peanuts that has sickened more than 690 people in 46 states. And in
      Sacramento on Tuesday, a lawmaker introduced legislation to tighten safety
      standards for foods processed in California.

      Earlier this week, Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella Inc., a San Joaquin
      Valley nut packer, recalled 2 million pounds of pistachios because of
      potential salmonella contamination. The company's nuts tested positive
      during routine checks at a plant operated by Kraft Foods Inc. and other
      food manufacturers, according to the FDA.

      Like Peanut Corp. of America, the company blamed for the widespread
      outbreak from peanuts, Setton is a bulk provider of nuts to food
      manufacturers and wholesalers. That means that the contaminated pistachios
      could have ended up in a variety of processed foods, including ice cream,
      cookies, candies and trail mix.
