Agricola Daniella Mangoes Linked To Salmonella Infections

Mangoes, from Agricola Daniella of Sinaloa, Mexico, were linked to a Salmonella Braenderup outbreak that infected 127 persons in 15 states. Reported illness onset dates ranged from July 3, 2012 to September 1, 2012

During this same time period, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other public health agencies investigated a Salmonella Worthington outbreak that infected 16 individuals from 3 states. The majority of the Salmonella Worthington outbreak victims, 89%, reported eating mangoes in the week before they became ill. One of the outbreak victims was infected with both Salmonella Braenderup and Salmonella Worthington, which suggested to public health officials that there may have been a connection between the two outbreaks.

Agricola Daniella Placed on Import Alert

On September 13, 2012, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) placed Agricola Daniella on Import Alert, after testing conducted by the FDA detected Salmonella in the company’s mangoes. The import alert meant that Agricola Daniella mangoes could not enter the U.S. unless the importer could demonstrate, through laboratory testing, that the mangoes were not contaminated with Salmonella.

Daniella Mangoes Recalled by Multiple Distributors and Retailers

Produce distributors and retail stores throughout the U.S. initiated product recalls for the Daniella Mangoes in late August of 2012. Company press releases for the recalled mangoes can be found on the FDA website.

Symptoms of Salmonella Infection

Symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning may include diarrhea (sometimes bloody), abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, and joint pain. Symptoms usually appear within 12-72 hours after the ingestion of contaminated food.

In more severe cases, the Salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to the blood stream and other body sites. This can result in death, unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics.

The elderly, infants, and those with impaired immune systems are more likely to suffer severe illness.

A Stool Culture May Confirm Salmonella Food Poisoning

If you suspect that you have contracted Salmonella, or are experiencing food poisoning symptoms, contact your doctor. He or she can order a stool culture to confirm Salmonella infection if appropriate.
