161. Here's the story. Raw almonds caused some problems for big corporate
farming. They weren't using the right protections and some almonds got contaminated. They got in trouble and since they wanted to make sure there was no more chance of contamination, they lobbied congress to make it mandatory that all farmers, even organic farmers who were not having any problems, be forced by law to pasteurize all almonds.

Now when I go to Trader Joe's they are selling all raw almonds as a last chance to buy item.
