Organic mangos are being recalled due to possible risk of Listeria monocytogenes.
Pacific Organic Produce in San Francisco, California haS voluntarily recalled a specific number of cases of organic Tommy Atkins mangos (PLU numbers 94051 & 94959) that were sold under the Purity Organic brand between the dates of April 14, 2014 and May 2, 2014 due to the possible health risk from Listeria monocytogenes.
The PLU number is printed in the middle of the PLU sticker on the fruit. The mangos were shipped to retailers and distributors in limited quantities within five (5) U.S. states: Arizona, California, Colorado, New Jersey and Texas.
Only the specific PLU numbers and sell dates identified above are included in this recall.
No illnesses have been reported in association with the recall and no other mangos or products under the Purity Organic brand are being recalled.
Pacific Organic Produce is coordinating closely with regulatory officials and has contacted its customers to ensure that any remaining recalled products are removed.
Listeria causes fever, nausea, diarrhea, muscle aches and is particularly threatening to pregnant women and others with weakened immune systems.
According to the CDC, approximately 1600 illnesses and 260 deaths are attributed to listeriosis annually. Listeria is the third leading cause of death from food poisoning in the U.S.
Consumers should not consume the recalled mangos and retain their store receipts, PLU stickers or any other proof of purchase, the company said. Retailers and consumers with questions should call Amy Rosenoff at Pacific Organic Produce customer service at 1-415-673-5555, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (PT) Monday to Friday.
