Ready Pac Recalls Fresh Cut Fruit Products Containing Mangoes

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services received information regarding the recall of packaged fruit products containing mangoes distributed through August 30, 2012.  The products contain Daniella Brand mangoes, which have been recalled by supplier Splendid Products due to potential contamination with Salmonella Braenderup.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infections with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The full recall and production information can be found at www.fda.gov/Safety/Recalls/ucm317952.htm.
