Are hazelnuts the new peanuts?
So some concern is understandable now that the salmonella-prompted hazelnut recalls seem to be piling up. Whole Foods has recalled bulk nuts sold in California and other Western stores. And that big name in impossible-to-regift gifts, Harry & David's, has joined the fray as well (though, granted, in a very small way). It's only natural for a nut-consuming public to fear a dearth of hazelnut products, a la the peanut product recalls of earlier this year.
