WAKE UP NATIONAL MANGO BOARD !!!...PUTTING A NAME & A FACE ON SALMONELLA BRAENDERUP VICTIMS ...

“She’ll never eat another mango again.” 


One with Salmonella anyway.




POSTED BY BILL MARLER ON SEPTEMBER 19, 2012



Now, that should get the mango industry’s attention.




JoNel Aleccia of NBC News wrote “Mangoes placed on import alert; 121 sick in U.S.,” after speaking with the daughter of my client Dorothy Pearce.




As we all know now, mangoes from a Mexican supplier with several plantations and a single packinghouse have been tied to an outbreak of Salmonella Braendreup infections that has sickened 121 people in 15 U.S. states and sent 25 to the hospital. It also sickened 21 in Canada. 



One of those victims is 92-year-old Dorothy Pearce of Stanwood, Washington who was hospitalized for 10 days after eating mango, a favorite fruit since childhood, her daughter said:

“She’s been really, really sick,” said Trisha Pearce, 59, the daughter of Dorothy who is suing Splendid Products of Burlingame, Calif., the distributor that recalled mangoes sold nationwide on August 29. 

“My mother doesn’t cry or compla…

WILL ON SITE PATHOGEN DETECTION BECOME PART OF SUPERMARKET HARDWARE ??? ...

ANSR Pathogen Detection System




Simpler The ANSR (Amplified Nucleic Single Temperature Reaction) system incorporates advances in DNA detection technology resulting in a system that is easy to use and provides much faster results than PCR systems. ANSR is designed to address in-plant testing needs and offers the freedom to economically process samples to meet regulatory requirements and ensure food safety.



Better As an economical, scalable platform with a 10-minute assay for Salmonella and 20-minute assay for Listeria, ANSR is a paradigm shift in rapid pathogen detection. The ANSR technique can be summed up in three simple steps: lyse, incubate and read.



Faster ANSR uses isothermal amplification to create a level of molecular target material that can be detected using fluorescence. The system has exhibited low matrix effects with high sensitivity and provides both positive and negative results in minutes.



ANSR is complementary to Neogen's Reveal lateral flow pathogen detection product…

Winn-Dixie Expands Voluntary Recall On Cut Fruit Produced By Renaissance Food Group – Mango Spears, Fruit Burst, and Island Medley – Due to Possible Heath Risk

Published: September 19, 2012







JACKSONVILLE, FLA. — Winn-Dixie today announced it is expanding an immediate voluntary recall of select cut fruit produced by Renaissance Food Group. 



The products are being recalled as a precaution because they contain a mango ingredient associated with Agricola Daniella Mangoes that has the potential of being contaminated with Salmonella. The expansion of this recall, which was first initiated on Aug. 31 for select Winn-Dixie stores in Florida, now includes the addition of Mango Spears to the product list and the inclusion of all Louisiana and Mississippi stores.


 Winn-Dixie stores in the states of Alabama and Georgia, along with many Florida stores, are not affected by this recall.





Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomitin…

Salmonella-Tainted Mangoes Sicken 121 in 15 States – FDA Bans Import of Agricola Daniella Mangoes

Agricola Daniella Mangoes Banned Until Negative for Salmonella: 121 Victims to Date







Consumption of Agricola Daniella mangoes from Mexico have now been linked to 121 salmonella illnesses, according to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which released a warning of the Salmonella Braenderup outbreak linked to the Mexican mangoes. 



The FDA has determined from trace-back investigations and sampling that the source of salmonella was mangoes from Mexico. For now, the FDA is advising against buying mangoes from Agricola Daniella of Mexico and has put the firm on import alert.









Over the past few weeks, 121 people across 15 states in U.S. have reported a salmonella infection linked to eating these mangoes—the link being verified by DNA testing of the salmonella strain that links each victim to this outbreak with a high degree of certainty.





The number of ill persons identified in each state is as f…

SMOKE & MIRRORS: Mango Recall Keeps Expanding; Here’s What You Should Know

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Remember that pretty big mango recall that lead to your favorite fruit cup getting pulled at Starbucks



It’s still going on–and even more distributers, grocers, and restaurants are keeping the sweet fruit from the shelves. But, because much of the potentially recalled fruit has already been distributed, it also now includes other products and medleys which may contain mangoes. Basically, don’t eat mangoes (unless you bought them fresh and not from Mexico) for a while.



Due to the size of the recall, and because the mangos were contaminated before they even made it into the country (they’re from Mexico), it’s probable that they’re still being processed and sold in a variety of forms that haven’t yet been pulled from shelves, including frozen and dried. Which is why it’s a good idea to continue to avoiding mango products until the whole thing has been squared away.



As of Sept. 13, the FDA began denying any new imports by Dani…
