Pacific Organic Produce, San Francisco, CA is voluntarily recalling a limited 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 a possible health risk from Listeria monocytogenes. 





No illnesses have been reported in association with the recall and no other mangos or products under the Purity Organic brand are being recalled.






No illnesses have been reported to date. 



However, the recall was issued as a precaution because a single sample in a FDA sample yielded a positive result for Listeria monocytogenes.



 Pacific Organic Produce is coordinating closely with regulatory officials and has contacted its customers to ensure that any remaining recalled products are removed. 






Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause foodborne illness in a person who consumes a food item contaminated with it. 




Symptoms of infection may include fever, muscle aches and gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea or diarrhea. 




The illness primarily impacts pregnant women and adults with weakened immune systems. Most healthy adults and children rarely become seriously ill.






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.




 Consumers who have any remaining product with these Product Codes purchased between the dates of April 14, 2014 and May 2, 2014 should not consume it, but rather should discard it. 



Consumers should retain their store receipts, PLU stickers or any other proof of purchase they may have. 




Retailers and consumers with questions may call Amy Rosenoff at Pacific Organic Produce customer service at 415-673-5555, which is open 8:00 am to 4:00 pm (PT) Monday - Friday.

THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER MANGOES IN THE WORLD ....

While "Flavor" is very subjective, and each country that grows mangoes is very nationalistic, these are the mango varieties that are the most sought after around the world because of sweetnesss (Brix) and demand.

The Chaunsa has a Brix rating in the 22 degree level which is unheard of!
Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.
Perhaps it is time for a GLOBAL taste test ???

INDIA 2016 : Mango production in state likely to take a hit this year

TNN | May 22, 2016, 12.32 PM IST






Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.




Karnataka is the third largest mango-growing state in India after Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra.
