Mahina Mele Farms, LLC is recalling the following products after FDA testing found Salmonella in macadamia nuts, according to a press release from the FDA. 

The macadamia nuts were distributed to retail stores in Alaska, California, Hawaii, Maryland and Virginia from Oct 21 to Nov 25, 2015, and involve three lot numbers 026, 027 and 029.

The FDA said no illnesses have been linked to the sale or consumption of the nuts. The nuts were recalled in the interest of public safety and health.

According to the FDA, healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

These are the infected nuts:
