Mexician Mangoes Sicken in US and Canada
As of August 22, 2012 there have been 22 confirmed cases of Salmonella Braenderup in Canada with 17 in British Columbia and 5 in Alberta. In the US, 101 cases of Salmonella Braenderup have been reported. Affected states reporting illnesses due to the outbreak strain include California (75 cases), Oregon (1 case), Washington (6 cases), Texas (2 cases) and New York (3 cases).
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.
