FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - September 19, 2012 - GHSW, LLC of Houston, Texas is initiating a voluntary recall of a limited quantity of expired products that contain fresh-cut mangoes and are distributed to retail supermarkets due to the potential risk that the mangoes may contain 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.

This recall is associated with Food Source’s recall of mangoes sourced from Agricola Daniella. The FDA has issued an Import Alert and advised consumers not to eat mangoes from Agricola Daniella.

The products listed in this recall were distributed through retail stores to the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi & Texas. Products are packaged in clear plastic containers (cups, trays and clamshell type containers) and were distributed to retail distribution centers August 29-September 5, 2012. Products contain printed code dates on the top or bottom labels of the plastic package, ranging from 9/7/12 -9/15/12. Please reference the information below for all products and code dates associated with this recall.
