Months ago the CDC reported a total of 127 persons infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Braenderup from 15 states.
33 ill persons were hospitalized. No deaths were reported.
Collaborative investigation efforts of state, local, and federal public health and regulatory agencies indicated that mangoes were the source of this outbreak.
On September 13, FDA placed Agricola Daniella of Sinaloa, Mexico on Import Alert. This means that Agricola Daniella mangoes will be denied admission into the United States unless the importer shows they are not contaminated with Salmonella.
During August 2012, CDC investigated a multistate outbreak of 16 Salmonella Worthington infections reported from 3 states.
Ill persons were reported from similar states and during the same time period as seen in the Salmonella Braenderup outbreak.
89% of ill persons with Salmonella Worthington who were interviewed reported consuming mangoes in the week before their illness began.
One case in the Salmonella Braenderup outbreak was also infected with Salmonella Worthington, a finding that suggests a possible connection between the two outbreaks.
