The mangoes were shipped to retailers and distributors in limited quantities only to those five states. The recall notice did not say where the mangoes were grown.
San Francisco-based Pacific Organic Produce has recalled a number of cases of organic Tommy Atkins mangoes sold under the “Purity Organic” brand between April 14 and May 2. No illnesses have yet been associated with the recalled organic mangoes, but the fruit may be contaminated with potentially deadly Listeria monocytogenes.
The PLU numbers on those recalled cases are 94051 & 94959. The PLU number is printed in the middle of the PLU sticker on the fruit.
The organic produce business issued a statement saying the recall was issued as a precaution because a single sample in a FDA test yielded a positive result for Listeria monocytogenes.
Pacific Organic Produce also said it was coordinating closely with regulatory officials and has contacted its customers to ensure that any remaining recalled products are removed.
Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause foodborne illness in a person who consumes a food item contaminated with it. Symptoms of infection may include fever, muscle aches and gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea or diarrhea.© Food Safety News
