Harry and David is voluntarily recalling raw, shelled hazelnut kernels due to concerns of potential Salmonella contamination. The hazelnuts were sold only in our Harry & David Country Village store located in Medford. The hazelnuts were supplied to us by Evonuk Oregon Hazelnuts.
The Harry & David Country Village store removed all the raw, shelled hazelnuts supplied by Evonuk from sale on Dec. 17, 2009. This was done in response to a recall issued on Dec. 17, 2009, by Willamette Sheller, Inc., the company that processed the hazelnuts for Evonuk.
The hazelnuts affected by this recall were sold as Filbert (hazelnut) kernels in bulk bin #10077 only at the Harry & David Country Village store, Medford, prior to Dec. 18, 2009.
No known illnesses have been reported to date in connection with the hazelnuts.
Consumers who have purchased any of the bulk hazelnuts from the Harry & David Country Village store are encouraged to return them to the store for a full refund.
