United Salad Co. Initiates Voluntary Recall of Products That Contains Mangoes
This recall is associated with Recall involving Food Source and Agricola Daniella
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – September 17, 2012 – United Salad Co. is initiating a voluntary, precautionary recall on various products it distributes to retail supermarkets that contain Mangoes associated with the Food Source Tomorrow’s Tropical recall with the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella.
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, infection 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.
There have been no reported illnesses attributed to the recalled items. United Salad Co. is issuing this voluntary recall linked to the supplier’s Tropical Mangoes recall to minimize risk to the public health.
The recalled products were distributed to retailers and supermarkets from 09/01/12 to 09/17/12 in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington. A list of recalled products is listed in the attached table.
The company has directly notified all customers who received the recalled product and requested removal from store shelves.
Anyone who has the recalled product in their possession should not consume it and should destroy or discard it. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-800-547-5536 Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Pacific Time).
In addition, if you may have further distributed this product, please identify your customers and notify them at once of this product recall and inform them to not consume the products and destroy or discard it.
This recall is being made with the knowledge of the Food and Drug Administration.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this regard. Please feel free to contact us should you require additional information or assistance.
