Mangoes a dangerous product on Pennsylvania store shelves?

After a summer with several recalls of foods that were potentially contaminated, it should come as little surprise to our Pennsylvania readers that another fruit has come under suspicion. Now the newest wave of recalls has affected the tropical fruit mango. In fact, the recently recalled Daniella brand mangoes appear to be a potentially dangerous product that was shipped across the country, affecting many. Authorities believe that the mangoes may be contaminated with salmonella.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) notes that they have received 105 reports of illnesses stemming from the consumption of what they believe is the suspicious mangoes. No deaths have been reported as a result of the salmonella outbreak, though the illness has been felt across the country. Those affected may suffer from diarrhea nausea and vomiting. For those with weakened immune systems such as infants and the elderly, the potential contamination could become severe enough that it could be fatal.

The mangoes come from a company that imports them and resells them to stores such as Costco and Whole Foods. If a person in Pennsylvania believes that they have the mangoes in their stores or homes, they should discard them immediately. So far, no reports have been in our state, though neighboring states have reported the illness.

The recall of this potentially dangerous product has covered the nation and many large grocery chains which may have sold the suspicious fruit from mid-July through August. Should anyone suspect that they have fallen ill as a result of ingesting the potentially contaminated mangoes, they should seek medical diagnosis. Though consumers may suspect only a virus, exposure to salmonella can result in serious illness or hospitalization. In the event of such illness or hospitalization, medical expenses may be incurred. To help, it may benefit Pennsylvania consumers to keep a detailed record of any medical diagnosis and treatment in the event they decide to pursue a personal injury claim.
