Possible salmonella contamination prompts company to recall almonds

Royal Candy & Nut Co. if Chicago is recalling about 5,000 packages of almonds because of possible salmonella contamination.

The recall of the packages of raw whole almonds and a California mix containing almonds is part of a nationwide recall that came after federal regulators received reports of several people becoming ill, most likely from raw almonds supplied by Paramount Farms in California.

The recalled almonds are packaged in 1-ounce packages and California mix in 2.1-ounce packages under the Royal Candy & Nut Co. label.

There have been no reports of illnesses.
