Organic Light Halves and Pieces shelled walnuts are most commonly sold at Whole Foods, but they can also be found at other grocery stores in Colorado.

The FDA says that Colorado, and 18 other states, are vulnerable to the outbreak. Thankfully there are no reported cases in Colorado, but 12 Americans have reported illness due to the recalled product, and there have been seven hospitalizations.

Have the Product? What to Do

If you have walnuts at your home, check the packaging immediately. If you happen to have the recalled product, throw it in the trash immediately.

Of course, many of us have walnuts in our homes. If you are unsure about whether your walnuts are affected by the recall, we recommend throwing them out to be safe.

When it comes to food my philosophy is when in doubt throw it out.

E. Coli can lead to major health problems. You do not want to take the risk.
