WASHINGTON, Sept. 14 (UPI) -- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration Friday warned consumers not to eat mangoes from Agricola Daniella of Mexico because of salmonella contamination.
The Agricola Daniella fruit comes from multiple plantations and is routed through a single packing house in Sinaloa, Mexico, the FDA said in a statement.
"When in doubt, throw it out," the administration warned, saying Agricola Daniella mangoes are being denied admission to the United States unless the company proves they are not contaminated via private testing.
Consumers should wash their hands with soap and warm water if they have come into contact with the mangoes. Symptoms of salmonella infection include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps that can last up to a week.
Consumers can call 888-SAFEFOOD or go to fda.gov for more information.
