Salmonella Outbreak Sickens 73, Leads to Daniella Mango Recalls
Daniella mangos distributed by Splendid Products have been recalled from shelves following a potential link to a salmonella food poisoning outbreak in Canada, and health officials indicate that the same strain of salmonella may be connected to at least 73 illnesses in California.
The recalled Daniella mangos come from Mexico and were distributed by Splendid Products. The mango recalls were announced by Giant Food and Stop & Shop Supermarket Company following the reports of food poisoning in Canada.
While authorities have indicated that the mangos are linked to the Canadian outbreak, they have yet to confirm that the mangos sickened 73 people in California. However, the strain of salmonella is the same and California health officials have warned residents not to eat Daniella mangos.

The recall affects Daniella mangos purchased between July 12 and August 24 and with a PLU of 4959. It is unclear whether the mangos were sold outside of Giant Food or Stop & Shop supermarkets.
Salmonella is a type of bacteria that attacks the gastrointestinal tract, causing mild to severe food poisoning.
For most healthy adults, symptoms of food poisoning from salmonella typically resolve after a few days or weeks. However, young children, the elderly, and individuals with compromised immune systems have an increased risk of suffering severe food poisoning after ingesting the bacteria. If not properly treated, some cases of salmonella food poisoning can lead to hospitalization, dehydration or death.
Depending on where the mangos were purchased, consumers with questions should call Giant Customer Service at (888) 469-4426 or visit www.giantfood.com, or they can call Stop & Shop Customer Service at (800) 767-7772 or visit www.stopandshop.com.
