December 13, 2019 — Tailor Cut Produce recalled pre-cut fruit after at least 33 people were sickened with Salmonella.
The outbreak was linked to 4 healthcare facilities in Pennsylvania, according to the Pennsylvania Department of Health, but officials have not released the names of those facilities.
People in hospitals or other healthcare facilities are more likely to develop a severe infection with Salmonella if they are sick, young, elderly, or taking certain medications.
The fruit was not sold to consumers in grocery stores. Instead, it was distributed to hospitals, nursing homes, schools, hotels, long-term care facilities, restaurants, and other facility food-service operations.
The recall includes a fruit mix called Fruit Luau, as well as cut honeydew, cut cantaloupe and cut pineapple.
The fruit items were distributed in Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania between November 15 and December 1, 2019.
No deaths have been reported, but at least 8 of the victims were hospitalized due to a severe illness, according to the outbreak investigation from the FDA.
