(Washington-AP) -- A California company is recalling five (M)million pounds of raw almonds sold nationwide after the Food and Drug Administration received seven reports of food poisoning.

The F-D-A received reports that the seven people in Alaska, Arizona, Oregon, Washington and Utah were sick with salmonella enteritidis, a type of food poisoning.
