A Trader Joe's brand pistachio producer in California has recalled some of its products after the nuts were linked to a strain of Salmonella that made nearly a dozen people ill in nine states between December and February, the CDC revealed.

The producer, Wonderful Pistachios, said the recall is voluntary, reported Reuters. The nuts were sold throughout the United States and Canada under the brand names Wonderful, Paramount Farms and Trader Joe's.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Wednesday advised consumers not to eat any recalled pistachios that might be in their homes. The lot codes of the recalled products are available on the Wonderful Pistachios website

Infections, caused by the strain Salmonella Montevideo, were reported in 11 people between Dec. 12 and Feb. 9. Two people were hospitalized; no deaths were reported, the CDC said.

There were cases in Washington, Arizona, North Dakota, Minnesota, Michigan, Virginia, Connecticut, Georgia and Alabama.

A number of the infected people reported having eaten Wonderful brand pistachios, and the CDC found the outbreak strain of Salmonella in raw pistachios at Paramount Farms, where Wonderful pistachios are grown.

Salmonella, a bacterial infection that causes vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever, is most commonly found in raw or undercooked meat, poultry and eggs.
