Million Mango Recall
A U.S. fruit distributor has announced a recall of as many as 1 million mangoes that may carry salmonella bacteria. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says researchers found indications the mangoes are to blame for a “multistate cluster” of salmonella.
I do love mangoes! Granted, they peel and that giant seed can be a chore, but they're worth the work. We got the news this morning that more than a million mangoes have been recalled. Here's the story on that plus, we checked out one of the stores mentioned and you'll see what we found.
A majority of the U.S. cases were reported by the California Department of Public Health but the disease has also been reported in Canada. Splendid Food Products of Burlingame, California, said the suspect mangoes, grown in Mexico, have Daniella brand stickers with PLU numbers 3114, 4051, 4311, 4584 or 4959. They were sold as individual fruit in supermarkets around the country, including Costco, Save Mart, Food 4 Less, Ralph’s, Topco stores, El Super, Kroger, Giant-Eagle, Stop & Shop, Aldi and Whole Foods. Splendid said buyers of mangoes from the suspect group shouldn’t eat them. They should also consider throwing out mangoes without a brand sticker.
Noticing that KROGER was on the list, I went to the Lake Charles Kroger on 12th Street and found that they did indeed stock Mangoes, but not from the distributor listed nor were they from Mexico. So, when you go to Kroger...stock up on mangoes..they're safe
