WASHINGTON, June 23 (UPI) -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning people not to eat California Prime Produce- or Orange County Orchards-brand pistachios.

FDA officials said Orca Distribution West Inc. of Anaheim, Calif., received and repackaged pistachios recalled by Setton Pistachios of Terra Bella Inc. Setton had recalled all of its pistachios because of possible salmonella contamination that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections.

The products were distributed to retail locations in airports and hotels nationwide in clear 6-ounce flexible plastic Ziploc bags, with "Sell By Dates" of "7/30/09" and "8/30/09."

The FDA said more than 660 products have been affected by the Setton Pistachio recall.

A FDA list of all recalled pistachio products is available at http://www.accessdata.fda.gov/scripts/pistachiorecall/index.cfm.
