Papaya Salmonella cases top 200; more farms implicated

September 2, 2017 from FoodSafetyNews:
"As of Thursday, there were 210 confirmed victims in the U.S. They are infected with seven different serotypes of Salmonella. The victims are spread across 23 states, with one death reported in New York, according to the CDC." " Three separate outbreaks linked to papayas from different farms have been identified."
The three farms in Mexico that FDA has confirmed as having Salmonella-contaminated papayas are:

  • Carica de Campeche in Tenabo, in the state of Campeche;
  • Caraveo Produce in Tecomán, in the state of Colima; and
  • El Zapotanito in La Huerta, in the state of Jalisco.

Three brands of maradol papayas — all sourced from the Carica de Campeche farm, which was the first one linked to the current outbreaks — have been recalled in the United States. They are:
  • Caribeña brand, distributed by Grande Produce;
  • Cavi brand papayas distributed by Agroson’s; and
  • Valery brand papayas distributed by Freshtex Produce LLC.

"The FDA is working to ensure that there are no other brands of papayas on the market that may have originated from the Carica de Campeche, Caraveo Produce of Mexico, and El Zapotanito farms."
