A total of 103 persons infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Braenderup have been reported from 16 states. The majority of ill persons (78) have been reported from California. This number may change as more cases are confirmed. Most persons became ill during July. 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 1 to 86 years, with a median age of 32 years old. Fifty-five percent of ill persons are female. Among 69 persons with available information, 25 (36%) patients reported being hospitalized. No deaths have been reported.
The mangoes that are subject to the recall were bought between July 12 and August 24, have a price look-up (PLU) number of 4959, and are labeled as Daniella mangoes. Late last week a Canadian produce importer recalled its Daniella mangoes from Mexico after they were linked to Salmonella Braenderup infections. Giant Food of Landover, Md., following a voluntary recall by Splendid Products, announced it removed from sale Daniella mangos due to possible Salmonella Braenderup contamination.
