Mangoes Sold at Giant Eagle and Whole Foods Recalled Over Possible Salmonella Contamination
Nearly one million mangoes have been recalled because they may be linked to a multistate outbreak of over 100 Salmonella infections.
Splendid Products of California issued the recall after their mangoes were linked to a number of recent cases of salmonellosis. The recall included about 100,000 boxes of fruit that were sold to retailers nationwide, including Giant Eagle and Whole Foods stores.
The affected mangoes have a Daniella brand sticker with one of the following PLU numbers: 3114, 4051, 4311, 4584, or 4959. Consumers who bought the recalled mangoes should either throw the fruit away or return it to the store.
Symptoms of salmonella poisoning typically develop within 72 hours after eating the contaminated food and include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever.
