Produce distributor Splendid Products is recalling some lots of Daniella mangoes because they may be contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup bacteria. The fruit was sold individually and can be identified by the Daniella brand sticker and one of these PLU numbers: 3114, 4051, 4311, 4584, or 4959. You can see all of the photos of the recalled fruit at the FDA site.
The mangoes were sold at retail stores throughout the United States from July 12, 2012 to August 29, 2012. Mangoes have been linked to 22 cases of salmonellosis in Canada and may be linked to a Salmonella Braenderup outbreak in the U.S. that was just announced by the CDC.
Some of the retailers involved in this recall may include Aldi, BI-LO, Copps, Costco, El Super, Food 4 Less, Giant Foods, Kroger, Mariano’s, Martin’s Food Market, Metro Market, Pick ‘n Save, Rainbow, Ralph’s, Savemart, Stop & Shop, TOP Food & Drug, Topco, WalMart, and Whole Foods.
If you have purchased these mangoes, do not eat them. If there is no identifying sticker on the mango, discard them or return them to the place of purchase. The investigation into the outbreak is still ongoing, and there may be more foods recalled in association with this outbreak.
For questions, call Splendid Products at 866-9018-8758 Monday through Friday from 8:00 am through 6:00 pm ET, and Saturday September 1, 2012 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm ET. And stay tuned, because the news on the outbreak and these recalls is coming quickly.
