In light of recent news of Salmonella outbreaks, I wanted to inform the readers of this blog of two precautionary recalls due to possible salmonella contamination. Even if the recalls do not pose a serious danger to ones health, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Additionally, retailers are allowing for returns of these products for a full refund.

Daniella Mangoes

Splendid Products has recently announced the recall of Daniella mangoes due to possible salmonella contamination. This recall came about after Canada initiated a recall of the mangoes due to reported illness. According to the FDA, the recalled mangoes were packed in Mexico, distributed by Splendid Products and sold between July 12, 2012 and August 29, 2012 at various stores throughout the United States.

Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad Kits

According to the United States Department of Agriculture, Real Mex Foods is recalling approximately 77,688 pounds of Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad Kits. The reason for the recall is that the salad dressing included in the salad kit is made with cilantro, which is possibly contaminated with Salmonella.
