Freshtex Produce Recalls Valery brand Maradol Papayas for Salmonella

Freshtex Product of Alamo, Teas, is voluntarily recalling Valery brand Maradol papayas grown and packed by Carica de Campeche, because they may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria. These fruits were distributed to Illinois from July 10 to July 13, 2017. The product may have been distributed outside Illinois as well.

You can identify the papayas by the Valery name on the box and label grown and packed by Carica de Campeche. No other papayas distributed by Freshtex Produce LLC are recalled.

Freshtex was notified by the FDA on August 4, 2017, that other brands of Maradol papayas from that farm had tested positive for the pathogenic bacteria. No illnesses have been connected to the Valery brand of Maradol papayas, but the FDA recommended that all Maradol papayas imported in July from the Carica de Campeche farm be recalled.

If you purchased this product, do not eat it. Throw it away in a sealed or double bagged package, or take the fruit back to the store where you bought it for a full refund.
