Mexican mangoes recalled over salmonella risk

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 10:15 a.m. HST, Aug 30, 2012

WASHINGTON >> Fruit distributor Splendid Products is recalling several lots of Daniella brand mangoes, which may have triggered an outbreak of salmonella that has sickened more than 100 people in 16 states.

The company said the recalled mangoes come from Mexico and carry the Daniella brand sticker. The affected lot numbers are: 3114, 4051, 4311, 4584 or 4959.

The mangoes were sold at various U.S. retailers between July 12 and August 29.

Splendid said it voluntarily recalled the product “out of an abundance of caution,” after consulting government authorities.

Federal health officials are still investigating what caused the outbreak of 103 cases of salmonella Braenderup infections. U.S. and Canadian authorities are trying to identify which mango brands or sources may have caused the illnesses. No deaths have been reported.

yipes, good thing(?) we bought a case of mangoes and I noticed the brand name Daniella on the box! checked the sticker on the mangoes that we haven't eaten yet, and sure enough, the number matched those being recalled in the article:(. glad the SA carried this article.

All one has to do is wash each mango individually with warm water thoroughly. Costco called 2 nights ago to warn us about the recall. Told them we ate all 8 mangoes without any problems. In fact, just bought 8 more today, but as I checked-out, stopped at the Customer Service counter and inquired for more details about the Salmonella infection. We wash all melons with hot soapy water before placing it in the frig. We try to stay clear of cantaloupes as its skin is very difficult to clean or wash. Prudence on everyone's part will help to curb the spread of of salmonella.

Mexican agribusiness uses human waste as fertiziler. That's where the salmonella comes from.

That is the very reason to only buy local! How many mango trees you see with loads of mangoes on the road or ground these days? Plenty. Only Foodland was selling locally grown mangoes at a premium but at least I knew that they were sweet and good. The Mexican mangoes were sold everywhere looked different and I never bought them no matter that they were much cheaper. Great for sales.

Gee thanks for the late notice on the recall. The mangoes were sold between July 12 and August 29, huh? What happens if someone got sick during that period? Other than using a lot of TP, electrolyte and Imodium AD that is.
