Giant Food stores is recalling Daniella Tropical Mangoes that were grown in Mexico for possible Salmonella contamination. The product may be returned to the place of purchase for a full refund. All recalled mangoes will be labeled with the “Daniella” label and have a number “4959”.
These are the same mangoes that were recalled in Canada over the weekend. In that country, there is an outbreak of Salmonella Braenderup that has sickened 17 people in British Columbia and 5 people in Alberta. In Canada, the mangoes were sold from July 12, 2012 to August 14, 2012.
There is no word on any illnesses in the United States, and the FDA has not yet issued a recall. Salmonella can produce an infection that causes diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. The very young, senior citizens, and those with compromised immune systems can become seriously ill with this infection and may need to be hospitalized.
