New Jersey produce company recalls mango products that were distributed in the Northeast ...

By Associated Press, Updated: Saturday, September 1, 8:21 PM

NEW YORK — A New Jersey produce company recalled a number of products distributed in the Northeast that contained fresh-cut mangoes Saturday because of potential salmonella contamination.

The products in question have an expiration date of Aug. 28, but the company, F&S Produce Co. Inc., working with the Food and Drug Administration, issued the voluntary recall regardless.

No illnesses have been reporting in relation to products from F&S Produce, of Rosenhayn, N.J. Federal health officials are investigating 103 known cases of salmonella infection not related to the recall Saturday.

Health officials in the U.S. and Canada are trying to figure out which brands or sources of mangoes caused the illnesses with other products. No deaths have been reported.

F&S said that products with m…
