California almonds to be treated for salmonella

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

A court has given the go-ahead to federal officials to treat California almonds for salmonella.

The ruling comes after two outbreaks were linked to California almonds back in 2004. The case stemmed from a 2007 order that all almonds sold in the country be treated with heat and chemicals.

Almond growers were opposed to the move, but an appeals court ended up siding with federal officials.
