A nation-wide recall of mangoes includes fruit sold in Indiana, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The FDA issued an alert on Daniella Brand mangoes, packed in Mexico and distributed by Splendid Products of Burlingame, California, sold between July 12, 2012 and August 29, 2012, at various stores throughout the United States.
Undergoing investigation spurred voluntary precautionary recalls by several food companies.
Ready Pac Foods is one of the companies that recalled its packaged fruit products containing Daniella Brand mangoes. A list of states impacted by the recall includes Indiana.
“Our priority is to participate in the Daniella Brand recall to assist in reducing the risk to public health,” Ready Pac spokeswoman Tristan Simpson.
All Starbucks stores in Indiana area have recalled the Seasonal Harvest Fruit Blend which contains the same brand of mangoes.
Both companies say the recalls have been completed. No mango-related infections have been reported in Indiana.
The FDA suggests that washing, cutting, slicing and dicing contaminated fruits may transfer harmful bacteria from the fruit’s surface to the fruit’s flesh.
The following products have been recalled in Indiana:
Seasonal Harvest Fruit Blend, 6oz, UPC:62111-71390,
