F & S Produce Company

F & S Produce Company, September 1, 2012 - F&S Produce Co., Inc. of Rosenhayn, NJ is initiating a voluntary recall of a limited quantity of expired products that contain fresh-cut mangoes, with a code date that is on or before August 28, 2012, as a result of a FDA recall by Splendid Products because Daniella brand mangoes distributed by this firm may be contaminated with Salmonella. Products containing fresh-cut mango products that were affected by this recall were distributed to grocery and convenience store customers in the Northeast. Products were processed between 8/9/2012 to 8/19/2012, and utilized mangoes sourced from Mexico that are associated with this current outbreak.
Products produced with Use-by or Sell-By dates of August 29 or later, have been processed using mangoes sourced from Brazil, and are not associated with this recall.

Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

There have been no reported illnesses attributed to the items listed in this recall. F&S Produce is issuing this voluntary recall linked to Splendid Product’s Daniella Brand Mangoes to minimize risk to the public health. A list of the items with corresponding brands and code dates associated with the recall are provided in the table below.

F&S Produce has directly notified its customers who received the recalled product and requested removal from store shelves. Consumers who have purchased any of these fresh-cut mango products, that have a code date that is on or before August 28, should not consume the mangoes and should discard them. The code date can be found on the label on the top or the bottom of the plastic bowls, cups, or trays. Consumers with questions may contact the company at 1-856-391-7100, Monday through Friday, except on holidays, from 8:00am to 5:00pm EST.
