Almond's safety halo can be shared by all nuts
The almond industry has been spared the recalls experienced by other nuts, and Tim Birmingham from the Almond Board of California tells FoodNavigator-USA about the measures the almond industry has taken to deal with food safety issues.

Despite huge recalls related to salmonella in other nut products this year, including pistachios and peanuts, Birmingham says that the almond industry is not interested in leveraging its mandatory pasteurization stance as a marketing tool. On the contrary, it is looking to share the technology with nut industries that are seeking to protect consumer health.
