State warns of mangoes in salmonella recall
CONCORD — New Hampshire residents are being warned not to eat Daniella brand mangoes from the California-based Splendid Products because they may be contaminated with salmonella.
The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services said some of the mangoes were distributed and sold in the state.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is investigating a multistate outbreak of salmonella infections associated with the recalled mangoes, but there have been no cases of Salmonella identified in New Hampshire that are related to the outbreak.
The mangoes being recalled were packed in Mexico and sold between July 12 and Aug. 29. The mangoes were sold as individual fruit with the sticker brand “Daniella.” Each fruit was also marked with a small sticker with one of the following codes: 4051, 4959, 4311, 4584 or 3114.
Consumers who have purchased the recalled mangoes should not eat them and should throw them away. The contamination cannot be washed off and the bacteria could be spread by cutting, slicing or dicing the fruit.
“Salmonella can be a serious illness, especially for children, seniors and people with weakened immune systems,” said New Hampshire Public Health Director Dr. JosÚ Montero. “We are urging the public to check for these mangoes, and discard any that have been recalled.”
People infected with symptoms typically develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after being infected. The illness usually lasts four to seven days and most people recover without treatment. However, for some, the diarrhea may be severe enough that they needs to be hospitalized.
If you are unsure if your fruit is the brand that has been recalled, Montero said it is better to be safe and not eat the fruit.
For specific questions about salmonella, call DPHS at 271-4496.
