Brazil nuts to be removed from supermarket shelves after two-year hiatus

The state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, will soon be free of the brazil nuts that have been widely blamed for a spike in the number of people contracting salmonella from the nuts.

The state government on Tuesday announced a ban on the nut-like nuts for two years, and announced it would be removing them from the shelves of all supermarkets in the state.

It has been blamed for rising cases of the salmonellosis bacteria that has plagued Brazil since last year.

Health officials have said they believe Brazil’s large, urbanized population, coupled with the lack of a proper sanitary regime, is the main cause of the outbreak.

The Brazilian National Institute of Agricultural and Consumer Sciences (IACS) said the nut’s popularity has increased in recent years and that the country needs to implement a strict, one-size-fits-all plan for its nuts.

It said that the government needs to consider all possible alternatives to remove the nut, including reducing the quantity and quality of the nut paste.

“Nut paste can be made with different kinds of nuts, which means there are many possibilities, and these are all good choices,” said IACS chief Rafael Alves.

“If the nut is not pasteurized, there are also other alternatives.”IACP will continue to work on ways to reduce the spread of salmonello,” he said.
