Whole Foods has recalled its store brand raw macadamia nuts in six states due to potential Salmonella contamination, according to consumer advocacy site Consumerist.com.

The recalled product was distributed to Whole Foods Market, Greenlife Grocery, and Harry's Farmers Market stores in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee, according to an FDA statement.

The contaminated nuts were discovered during routine testing conducted by an FDA-contracted laboratory, Consumerist reported.

The FDA advises consumers who have purchased the potentially contaminated nuts in the affected states to discard the goods and bring in their receipt for a full refund.

According to the FDA, no illnesses have been reported to date.
