FDA stops imported Mangos that are linked to salmonella

 Last week the federal food and drug administration detained imported mango from Mexican packinghouse after their product was linked to salmonella illness in 15 states. The FDA announced the alerts on Friday, September 14, against Agricola Daniella, a mango supplier with many plantations in Sinaloa, Mexico which means that the United States won’t accept any more imports until the company can show through testing that the mangos are safe.
 
The majority of the reported illness came from California which leads to importers recalling the Daniella branded mangoes. The mangoes were sold at various U.S. retailers from July 12 to August 29. So far no deaths have been reported but the illness count is now at 121 stated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
 
The most common symptoms of Salmonella are diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within eight hours to 72 hours of eating contaminated foods and it can be life-threatening with someone who has a weak immune system.
