Pacific Organic Produce Issues Recall On Mangoes

BY CATHERINE ROBERTS | 




MAY 6, 2014 @ 9:22 AM









Pacific Organic Produce has issued a voluntarily recall on several cases of organic mangos, sold under the Tommy Atkins and Purity Organic brands, due to their potential contact with Listeria monocytogenes bacteria. 


No additional Purity Organic products were affected by this recall.



Listeria monocytogenes bacteria causes food poisoning and associated symptoms (such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea fever, muscle aches and gastrointestinal and digestive issues) if humans consume contaminated food contaminated with the bacteria. 



Listeria monocytogenes (or L. monocytogenes) usually contaminates fresh fruits and vegetables via soil (or manure/fertilizer) or water.





In the recall, Pacific Organic Produce cautions consumers who purchased mangos marked with a Purity Organic brand and sold between April 14, and May 2, 2014. 




Suspect cases will contain PLU numbers 94051 & 94959 and retailed in the US states of Texas, Arizona, New Jersey, California, and …

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.

NMB RESPONDS TO MANGO LYSTERIA OUTBREAK

Greetings Mango Industry Members,

The mangos were voluntarily recalled after routine testing conducted by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found that a single sample tested positive for Listeria monocytogenes. Pacific Organic Produce has stated that no illnesses have been reported.


According to the company the only products affected by this voluntary recall are Tommy Atkins mangos (PLU 94051 and PLU 94959) sold under the Purity Organic brand between April 14, 2014, and May 2, 2014.





Providing consumers with safe, quality mangos is the top priority of the mango industry.

Stratfor






By George Friedman I will be leaving this week to visit a string of countries that are now on the front line between Russia and the European Peninsula: Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Serbia and Azerbaijan. A tour like that allows you to look at the details of history. But it is impossible to understand those details out of context. The more I think about recent events, the more I realize that what has happened in Ukraine can only be understood by considering European geopolitics since 1914 -- a hundred years ago and the beginning of World War I.
In The Guns of August, Barbara Tuchman wrote a superb and accurate story about how World War I began. For her it was a confluence of perception, misperception, personality and decisions. It was about the leaders, and implicit in her story was the idea that World War I was the result of miscalculation and misunderstanding. I suppose that if you f…
