Organic walnuts linked to E. coli outbreak

May have been available in some Montana locations

Centers for Disease Control and prevention issued a warning Tuesday that natural food and cooperatives stores including some in Montana may have Gibson Farms Inc. organic walnut halves or pieces that are linked to an E. coli outbreak.

"E. COLI OUTBREAK: If you buy organic walnut halves or pieces from bulk containers at natural food and co-op stores in AK, AR, AZ, CA, CO, HI, ID, KS, LA, MT, NE, NM, NV, OR, SD, TX, UT, WA, or WY, check to see if your store had recalled walnuts. Some stores may repackage walnuts into plastic clamshells or bags.

"Check your pantries, refrigerators, and freezers for walnuts. Throw them away or return them to where you bought them. Wash items and surfaces that may have touched the walnuts using hot soapy water or a dishwasher.

"If you don't know if it's part of the recall, it's safer not to eat them.

"Retailers: Check the outbreak notice to see if you received recalled organic walnut halves or pieces. Do not sell or serve them.
