Papayas RECALLED! Led to Salmonella Outbreak!
Consumers in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island are being urged not to eat fresh papaya from Mexico.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control has issued a public safety alert after 62 people in eight states were infected with salmonella after eating the imported fruit. Nearly 40% of them were admitted to local hospitals.
In addition to whole papayas, the CDC warned consumers in the six states against eating fruit salads or other food that might contain the fruit. The United States imports 97% of its papaya, with the bulk of it, or between 65% and 80%, coming from Mexico, according to U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Most people infected with salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps between 12 and 72 hours after eating contaminated food, and are ill between four days and a week.
Toss your papaya from Mexico and keep your family safe! Better safe than sorry!
