No. Cashews, while seeds and not true nuts, are fine.

They're not ideal food - no nuts are - but they're better than some nuts. They actually have pretty low PUFA content compared to most nuts. Make them a treat - a handful on your salad every once in awhile, maybe crust your salmon in a handful of chopped cashews, the occasional apple with almond butter for a snack or dessert, etc. Just don't make them...or any nut...a dietary staple.
