Pecan Safety: Hot Water Conditioning to Mitigate Microbial Hazards

Pecans have not been associated with any foodborne disease outbreaks, but orchard conditions before and after the harvest indicate there are potential food safety risks. Contamination on in-shell pecans and nutmeats can occur preharvest, at harvest and during postharvest handling and processing. During rainfall, the shucks surrounding pecans get wet along with the nut. The nutrient-rich shucks provide a suitable environment for microbial growth. Salmonella can survive for several weeks, making it one of the favored routes for contamination.
