May 7, 2014 — Pacific Organic Produce has issued a recall for organic Tommy Atkins mangos sold under the “Purity Organic” brand. The mangos were sold in Arizona, California, Colorado, New Jersey, and Texas between April 14 and May 2, 2014.
The recalled mangos have a PLU sticker with the numbers 94051 & 94959 printed in the middle of the sticker. Consumers who purchased recalled mangos should throw them away, but keep the PLU sticker or other proof of purchase. No illnesses have been reported to date, but if you feel sick, contact a doctor and report your illness to the FDA.
The recall was issued after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) found a single sample that was positive for Listeria monocytogenes, a bacteria found in the soil, water, and some animals, including poultry and cattle.
Food poisoning from Listeria primarily impacts pregnant women, often causing miscarriage, and people in poor health. Infection is rarely life-threatening for children and healthy adults.
Listeriosis symptoms may include:
- Muscle aches
- Gastrointestinal problems
- Abdominal cramps or pain
- Nausea, vomiting
