FDA: Possible Salmonella Risk In Daniella Mangoes; Check Codes On Fruits

PHOTO: The FDA is advising consumers not to eat Daniella mangoes distributed by Splendid Products of Burlingame, California because they may be contaminated with Salmonella. This advice comes after Splendid Products announced a recall of this type of mango.

These mangoes were packed in Mexico, distributed by Splendid Products and sold between July 12, 2012 and August 29, 2012 at various stores throughout the United States. The mangoes were sold as individual fruit with the sticker brand “Daniella.” Each fruit was also marked with a small sticker with one of the following codes: 4051, 4959, 4311, 4584 or 3114.  Consumers who have purchased these recalled mangoes should not eat them and should throw them away, the FDA says.

The Produce distributor Splendid Products says, Mangoes have been linked to a number of recent cases of salmonellosis in Canada, and may be linked to cases in California and perhaps other states.

“Although an investigation is still ongoing, out of an abundance of caution Splendid Products is recalling Daniella mangoes in the U.S. The recall is being conducted in consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the California Department of Public Health”, the distributor said.

The most common symptoms of salmonella are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever, which develop within eight to 72 hours of eating contaminated food. The illness usually lasts four to seven days and most people recover without treatment. However, salmonellosis can be severe or even life-threatening for infants, older people, pregnant women and people with weakened immune systems. Consumers who believe they may have contracted a Salmonella infection should contact a healthcare provider.

Those who have bought the recalled mangoes are advised not to eat them and to discard them. If there is no identifying sticker on the mango, consider discarding or returning the product to the place of purchase.

Consumers who are unsure if the product they purchased is included in the recall or have additional questions, may call 866-918-8758 (Monday – Friday, 8:00 AM through 6:00 PM Eastern time and Saturday September 1 from 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM Eastern time). TLS.

  1. Those numbers are like UPC codes for produce..

    The recall is specifically for the Daniella brand. Shoprite immediately cleared their shelves of that particular brand as soon as they received Notice of the problem 4-5 days ago.

    Bon apetite.

  2. including at Costco, Save Mart Supermarkets, Food 4 Less, Ralph’s, Topco stores, El Super, Kroger, Giant-Eagle, Stop & Shop, Aldi, and some Whole Foods stores
