DENVER –

State health officials are warning that “Nantucket Blend” trail mix, made by Back to Nature Foods Company, could be contaminated with salmonella.

The company voluntarily recalled the trail mix Thursday, saying it contains pistachio nuts that may be contaminated. The recall is not connected with the recent outbreak associated with peanuts or peanut butter.

The products were distributed to retail stores nationwide, including King Soopers and City Market stores in Colorado. The recalled product has been pulled from shelves.

The following products were recalled and should not be eaten:

Back to Nature “Nantucket Blend” trail mix, 28 oz. bag, UPC code 59283-00020 and a “best by” date between 08 20 09 and 12 12 09

Back to Nature “Nantucket Blend” trail mix, 10 oz. bag, UPC code 59283-31039 and a “best by” date between 11 04 09 and 12 12 09.

There once was a blend from Nantucket,

Whose nuts were so bad you puked buckets,

“Back to Nature” they exclaimed,

As your hind doth complained,

Enough of the “health” foods – just chuck it!

You do know the FDA has approved salmonella in their food groups!

That’s what happens when the ingredients in your trail mix come directly from the trail.
