Tailor Cut Produce Recalls Cut Fruit Mix for Salmonella Contamination

Tailor Cut Produce of New Jersey is recalling its Fruit Luau, cut honeydew, cut cantaloupe, and cut pineapple products because they may be contaminated with Salmonella bacteria. The recall notice states, “The potential for contamination was noted after several patients fell ill in four hospitals in Pennsylvania.”

That Salmonella Javiana outbreak has sickened at least 31 people in southeast Pennsylvania. Production of the Tailor Cut Produce products are suspended while the FDA and the company continue their investigation into the problem. People who were sickened in this outbreak allegedly ate Tailor Cut Produce Fruit Mix, which is made with cantaloupe, honeydew melon, pineapple, and grapes. The recall notice is linked to the FDA outbreak investigation notice.

The recalled fruit products were distributed in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, and Delaware between November 15, 2019 and December 1, 2019. The product is in 2/1 gallon cases with the date of production stamped on the side.

Any distributors who bought thee cut fruit products on those distribution dates sold quarantine them and call the company for instructions.

The outbreak notice states that Tailor Cut Produce distributed their products to banquet facilities, hotels, schools, restaurants, and institutional food service establishments. While the outbreak notice states that these products were sent to New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, Delaware has been added in the recall notice.

Symptoms of a Salmonella food poisoning infection include a fever, nausea, headache, vomiting, abdominal and stomach cramps, and diarrhea that may be bloody. These symptoms usually begin 12 to 72 hours after exposure to the pathogen.

Most people feel sick for about a week, and most recover without medical intervention. But some people, particularly young children, the elderly, pregnant women, and people with compromised immune systems or chronic illnesses such as diabetes or cancer, can become seriously ill with this infection and need hospitalization. If you ate this product and have been sick, see your doctor.
