YANCEY, Texas -- A Texas-based pecan company is recalling plastic bags of its pecan pieces in small, medium and large sizes because they may be contaminated with salmonella.
The American Pecan Co. said Friday that its one-pound bags of shelled pecans were sold to walk-up customers at their Yancey location in south-central Texas, as well as to mail-order customers in Texas, New York and Massachusetts.
A routine sampling by the Food and Drug Administration found bacteria in the pecans, officials said.
The company says no illnesses have been reported, but it has stopped producing and distributing the product.
