FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - September 28, 2012 - In cooperation with the FDA's warning  not to consume mangos from Agricola Daniella in Mexico, Del Monte Fresh Produce N.A., Inc, is initiating a voluntary recall of a limited quantity of certain fresh-cut fruit packages containing mangos distributed to retail outlets due to the potential risk that the mangos 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 the Coast Distributors, Inc. mangos sourced from Agricola Daniella in Mexico. This limited recall does not involve any product grown in Del Monte owned farms.

Product was distributed by retailers in the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee. The products being recalled are in clear plastic bowls and are listed in the table below.
