SAN FRANCISCO, May 6 (UPI) -- Pacific Organic Produce voluntarily recalled a limited number of cases of organic Tommy Atkins mangos sold under the Purity Organic brand for possible Listeria.

The San Francisco-based company said no illnesses were reported, but the recall was issued as a precaution after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found a sample had one positive result for Listeria.

The recalled mangos have the PLU numbers 94051 & 94959 -- sold under the Purity Organic brand -- located in the middle of the PLU sticker on the fruit.

No other mangos or products under the Purity Organic brand were recalled, the company said.

The recalled mangos were shipped to retailers and distributors in Arizona, California, Colorado, New Jersey and Texas from April 14 to May 2.

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.
