Canada, California and Washington Likely Linked to Salmonella Braenderup Mango Outbreak

Daniella brand Mangoes implicated.

si-220-daniella-mangoes.jpegAccording to USA Today and Food Safety News, California has had 73 cases of Salmonella Braenderup, and 67% of those people reported that they ate mangoes. Washington State has had six cases of Salmonella Braenderup that match the genetic fingerprint of the Canadian cases but has not yet linked them directly to the Mexican mangoes. Canada reports that mangoes are linked to 22 infections in Canada with Salmonella Braenderup.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) expanded the public warning issued on August 24, 2012, to include additional dates of sale affected by the recall. The CFIA and North American Produce Sales are warning the public not to consume the Daniella brand Mangoes described below because they may be contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup bacteria. The affected Daniella brand Mangoes, product of Mexico, were sold as individual fruit with a sticker bearing PLU# 4959 and other information. These mangoes were sold at various retail stores between July 12 and August 24, 2012. Consumers are advised to contact the retailer to find out if you have the affected mangoes. If you have illness symptoms or any health concerns possibly associated with these mangoes, please contact your family doctor. These mangoes may have been distributed in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Yukon.
