HONOLULU -- Bags of pistachios made by a Hawaii company are being recalled for possible salmonella contamination. Some of the bags were distributed to Arizona.

Hawaii News Now reported the Food and Drug Administration said batches of Hilo Products Roasted & Salted Natural Pistachios may carry the bacteria.

The bags in question were distributed by Los Angeles-based Tom and Glasser, Inc. to Hawaii and California.

Each bag has a lot code, 0923, that can be found on the back corner next to the seal.

Customers who have purchased the nuts are advised not to eat them. They can return them for a full refund.

The company has also set up an information line at 800-282-6887.

According to the FDA, salmonella bacteria can cause severe infections that can turn fatal.
