Put down the bag of nuts, cashew addicts: According to Food Safety News, Trader Joe’s has recalled some of their Trader Joe’s Raw Cashew Pieces due to potential Salmonella contamination.

The bags affected are 16-ounce non-resealable bags of Trader Joe’s Raw Cashew Pieces with the barcode number of 0050514 and “BEST BEFORE 07.07.2016TF4” printed on them. The nuts were recalled after routine testing found the presence of salmonella in one lot of Trader Joe’s Raw Cashew Pieces, distributed to 30 states (and D.C.), including Pennsylvania and New Jersey.

If you find you have one of the bags, don’t eat it — you can return it to any Trader Joe’s for a full refund.
