6 cases of salmonella in Washington linked to Daniella mangoes

August 31, 2012

Federal health officials are telling Americans to avoid Daniella mangoes because they may be contaminated with salmonella that has already sickened more than 100 people in 16 states.

At least 6 people in Washington have reported becoming ill. So far, no cases have been confirmed in Grays Harbor.

The Food and Drug Administration issued the warning Thursday after Splendid Products recalled five lots of mangoes imported from Mexico. The mangoes carry the Daniella brand and the FDA says consumers should not eat the fruit and throw it away, if they have any.

The mangoes were sold at various U.S. retailers.

Federal health officials are still investigating what caused the outbreak of 103 cases of salmonella. No deaths have been reported.
