Salmonella outbreak in mangoes sickens 105

A salmonella outbreak in mangoes imported to the United States from Mexico has caused 105 people in 16 states to become ill between July 12 and August 29. Splendid Products’ Daniella-brand mangoes are believed to be responsible for the outbreak.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled Daniella mangoes should throw them away. According to USA Today, the tainted fruit was sold at Whole Foods, Kroger, Costco, Ralph’s, Aldi, El Super, Food 4 Less, Stop & Shop, Topco stores, Giant-Eagle, and Save Mart Supermarkets.

Salmonellosis is a bacterial illness caused by salmonella poisoning. Symptoms can include nausea, diarrhea, chills, abdominal cramps, fever, and vomiting. In some cases, the illness can be life-threatening.
