Mangos Possibly Infected with Salmonella Recalled

The FDA has announced an immediate recall on the whole Daniella brand of mangoes sold between July 12 and August 27 in South Carolina, Georgia, North Carolina, and Tennesse due to a possible Salmonella contamination.  The infected mangoes were imported from Mexico and sold as individual fruit.  They can be identified by the Daniella brand sticker and the UPC code:  0-00000-04051.  There have been no reported cases of illness as a result of the contaminated fruit, but Salmonella is a potentially fatal infection, especially in children and the elderly.  If you have bought mangos in the effected states but cannot find a sticker, call the store you bought them from and ask for sourcing information.
