Mangoes Recalled in Multiple States for Possible Salmonella Braenderup Contamination
Splendid Products, a distributor in Burlingame, California, recalled Daniella-brand mangoes on August 27, 2012 due to possible salmonella braenderup contamination. The recall comes as 105 people developed salmonella infections after eating the mangoes since the first of July.
The majority of the food borne salmonella cases were limited to Hispanic markets in California. However, multiple stores reportedly sold the mangoes, and victims have fallen ill in 16 different states. As of August 30, 2012, there have been no instances of fatalities, but at least 25 people have been hospitalized because of the outbreak.
The most common form of food borne food poisoning in our country is salmonella. The range of symptoms associated with salmonella can be very mild to extremely severe. Common symptoms are vomiting, fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhea. Salmonella is also widely considered the most dangerous form of food poisoning.
Consumers are advised to throw away any potentially affected fruits produced by the Daniella company. According to the Centers for Disease Control, affected mangoes will have a sticker tag PLU code of 3114, 4051, 4311, 4584 or 4959. If a mango does not have a sticker, consider it unsafe to eat unless its source is otherwise known.
