Salmonella Outbreak Traced to Mangoes

Federal health officials have identified Daniella mangoes, a brand distributed by a Northern California company, as the salmonella-infected fruit that has caused 103 cases of salmonella poisoning in 16 states so far.

The Food and Drug Administration issued the warning Thursday after Burlingame, Calif.-based Splendid Products recalled five lots of mangoes imported from Mexico. The mangoes carry the Daniella brand sticker with the lot numbers: 3114, 4051, 4311, 4584 or 4959. The FDA says consumers should not eat the fruit and throw it away, if they have any.
