No Salmonella in Long Island Nut Plant

Friday, April 10, 2009

New York officials say they found no traces of salmonella in a Long Island pistachio processing plant whose sister company sparked a nationwide recall of the nut last week.

State Agriculture Commissioner Patrick Hooker says inspectors received negative results on nine environmental swabs of Commack-based Setton International Foods, Inc. and eight sample tests of company food products.

The probe was conducted in tandem with an investigation into Setton's sister firm in California, where federal food safety officials found traces of the bacteria inside the plant earlier this week.
