Mangoes Recall: Salmonella Food Poisoning

An outbreak of Salmonella food poisoning has prompted the recall of Daniella-brand mangoes imported from Mexico by Splendid Products of Burlingame, CA. The outbreak began in Canada and has now spread to the United States, including the state of California, where 73 people have been sickened by Salmonella Braenderup, the outbreak strain of the pathogen.

A statistically high number of the California Salmonella victims, 67%, say they ate mangoes before becoming ill, according to Anita Gore of the California Department of Public Health in Sacramento. Washington state has 6 confirmed cases of Salmonella Braenderup, but has not announced whether those people ate mangoes.  Other states, including Pennsylvania, may have victims.

Giant Food, which operates 173 supermarkets in Virginia, Maryland, Delaware and the District of Columbia, issued a recall of the mangoes Monday. The mangoes were sold between July 12 and Aug. 24 and carried a price look-up code of PLU 4959.
