Salmonella warning issued for Agricola Daniella mangoes

The FDA issued a warning today advising consumers to steer clear of mangoes from Mexico based supplier Agricola Daniella due to the risk of salmonella contamination. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has tested several samples and found that they carry the same strain of bacteria that has been implicated in a recent salmonella outbreak that has affected 16 states and sickened 105 people so far. The California Department of Public Health had previously done their own study and traced the outbreak of salmonella braenderup back to Agricola Daniella. Consumers are advised to check labels carefully and ask their grocers about the source of their mangoes as well as the advice ‘when in doubt, throw it out.’ As of today the FDA has put all mangoes from this supplier of ‘Import Alert’, meaning that no more of the contaminated fruit will be allowed into the country but many of the fruits may still be on grocers shelves around the country.
