Contaminated Mangoes are Recalled in 16 States as Cantaloupe-Caused Salmonella Outbreak Continues to Grow~UPDATE 9/1/12
The following caught my eye because we purchase mangoes frequently:

snip

Burlingame, California importer Splendid Products has initiated a voluntary recall of Mexico grown Daniella-brand mangoes,
as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention linked the fruit to a salmonella outbreak which has sickened 103 people.

Last week, a Canadian importer recalled the fruit after 22 instances of salmonella infection were reported.
The CDC has confirmed that the DNA of both the Canadian and United States cases are a match.
The recall impacts 11 grocery store chains at this time, as yet unidentified.

CDC report:

Multistate Outbreak of Salmonella Braenderup Infections Associated with Mangoes

A total of 105 persons infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Braenderup have been reported from 16 states. The number of ill people identified in each state is as follows: California (80), Delaware (1), Hawaii (3), Idaho (1), Illinois (1), Louisiana (1), Maine (1), Michigan (1), Montana (1), Nebraska (1), New Jersey (1), New York (3), Oregon (1), Texas (2), Washington (6), and Wisconsin (1).

Among persons for whom information is available, illness onset dates range from July 3, 2012 to August 11, 2012. Ill persons range in age from less than 1 year to 86 years, with a median age of 30 years old. Fifty-four percent of ill persons are female. Among 69 persons with available information, 25 (36%) patients reported being hospitalized. No deaths have been reported.

Illnesses that occurred after August 6, 2012, might not be reported yet due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill and when the illness is reported.

In Canada:

snip

The Canadian Fruit Inspection Agency has expanded its recall of ďDaniellaĒ brand mangos to include the entire country because of a Salmonella Braenderup contamination concern that has resulted in about a dozen illnesses. In addition, mangos are suspected in a similar Salmonella outbreak in California.

The mangos in Canada were sold between July 12 and up to and including Aug. 28. As of Wednesday morning, 22 people had become sick, with 17 of them being in the province of British Columbia and five in neighboring Alberta. The Canadian importer, Mex Y Can Trading Inc. of Mississauga, ON, has voluntarily recalled the affected mangos and the CFIA is monitoring the Canadian recall.

Cantaloupe-Caused Salmonella Outbreak Not Over Yet

snip

Since the last CDC update on Aug. 23, Florida joined the outbreak with one case. No additional deaths were reported beyond the two from Kentucky that were first announced when CDC first confirmed the outbreak was underway on Aug. 17.

The outbreak strain of S. Typhimurium was matched to cantaloupe collected from Owensville, IN-based Chamberlain Farms by investigators from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) during site visits on Aug. 14 to 16.

CDC says 52 percent of the ill for whom information is available have required hospitalization. For the 149 who've reported to CDC, illness onset dates range from July 7, 2012 to August 18, 2012. Ill persons range in age from less than 1 year to 100 years, with a median age of 50 years. Fifty-nine percent of ill persons are female.

My son knew about this before I did--he works in a high-end produce market. He happens to be the one who loves mangoes and he almost purchased some, too. They were on sale, although I think these mangoes were from a different company.

Since the cantaloupe scare, I don't even go near them anymore.

FDA Investigates Multistate Outbreak of Salmonella Braenderup Infections Associated with Mangoes

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 on August 29, 2012.

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 ďDaniella.Ē 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. Photos of the recalled mangoes are available

they replied ....No, we are just moving them to a different location.

So, I bought 4.

Read this morning about the recall and sure enough .....4051 was in the recalled batch!

Here, this is an article that might interest you:

How Do Tomatoes Get Salmonella?

From poop to produce.


Manure, runoff, and wild animals. Livestock animals, especially when kept in large numbers in confined spaces, can contract salmonella and carry the bug without showing any symptoms at all. Infected cows, pigs, and chickens shed the bacteria in their waste, which is sometimes used to fertilize nearby fields. The heat generated when manure is composted kills off most, but not all, disease-causing bacteria.
Advertisement

Contaminated water supplies can also put salmonella on your tomatoes. Runoff from livestock pastures, or from leaky or overtopped waste lagoons at industrial farming sites, can dirty streams, groundwater, and other bodies of water farmers draw on for irrigation. According to an FDA investigation, that was the likely cause of a 2002 salmonella outbreak in imported Mexican cantaloupes.
