Mangoes Prompt Nationwide Recall

Splendid Products, a California-based produce company, is recalling Daniella brand mangoes they imported from Mexico after 103 people reported becoming ill. The mangoes may be contaminated with salmonella, a bacteria that can attack the intestines and blood stream in most humans.  The recall comes a few days after the Canadian Food Inspection Agency announced a recall of the same brand of mangoes after linking the product to several salmonella infections in Canada.

The mangoes were sold nationwide at Savemart, Food 4 Less, Ralph’s, Topco, El Super, Kroger, Aldi, and Whole Foods markets between July 12 and August 29, 2012. They can be identified with PLU numbers 3114, 4051, 4311, 4584 or 4959.

Larry Nienkerk, general manager and founder of Splendid Products, released the following statement on August 28 addressing the recall:

 “We want to let everyone know our top priority is public safety. We have notified all of our customers and we are working with all the government agencies that are involved.  We didn’t want to wait.”

Those who have bought the recalled mangoes are advised not to eat them and to discard them. For more information, visit the company’s website.

If you have purchased a product and suspect that the product poses health or safety hazards, contact Khorrami, LLP for a confidential consultation.
