We have been informed that Canadian Food Inspection Agency has recalled a limited number of Daniella brand mangoes due to the presence of Salmonella. One of Bountiful Baskets vendors supplied us with some Daniella mangoes last weekend (8/25) that were included in the Conventional Basket at two sites only; Vancouver, Washington and Salem, Oregon. Also, the full personal cases of Mangoes that were distributed co-op wide on 8/11/2012 are Daniella Mangoes. The mangoes that were distributed in baskets on 8/4/2012 and 7/25/2012 are also Daniella Mangoes.
Our vendors were informed this evening that the grower/shipper of the mangoes that were supplied announced a VOLUNTARY and PRECAUTIONARY recall. There has been no USDA recall. However, “when in doubt throw it out.” So with your health and safety in mind we are taking a very preventative and proactive measure and we are asking you to discard all of your produce from the 8/25/2012 basket that you received in Salem, Oregon or Vancouver, Washington ONLY. Those sites will receive a credit for the basket from 8/25/2012. Site wide personal case(s) of mangoes from 8/11/2012 will be credited.
