Recall, Affecting Many Vendors, of Mangoes Due to Possible Salmonella Contamination

Daniella brand mangoes are being recalled because they may be contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup. The recalled mangoes, a product of Mexico distributed by Splendid Products, were sold as individual fruit and can be identified by the Daniella brand sticker and one of the following PLU numbers: 3114, 4051, 4311, 4584 or 4959. The recalled mangoes were sold at various retail stores throughout the U.S. between July 12 and August 29, 2012.


Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, pregnant woman, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain within eight to 72 hours of eating contaminated food. The illness usually lasts four to seven days and most people recover without treatment. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.


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. The recall is being conducted in consultation with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the California Department of Public Health.
