September 10, 2017 from the FDA:
Bravo Produce Inc. of San Ysidro, is withdrawing Maradol Papaya, grown by Productores y Exportadores de Carica Papaya de Tecomán y Costa Alegre SPR of RL and packed by Frutas Selectas de Tijuana, S. de RL de CV, as a preventive measure, because the product has tested positive for Salmonella by exams done by FDA.
We inform that the product was distributed to markets within the state of California in the period from August 10 to 29, 2017. This product was addressed to wholesale customers and including retail consumers. Maradol Papayas were available for sale until August 29, 2017.

It is important to clarify that Frutas Selectas de Tijuana, S. de R.L. of C.V., it is only the PACKER and therefore it puts its labels, but the grower of the Maradol Papaya is Productores y Exportadores de Carica Papaya de Tecoman y Costa Alegre S.P.R. de R.L.
The consumer can identify the product by the codes found on the side of the box:

CDC discovers fourth Salmonella outbreak linked to papayas

September 12, 2017 from the Food Safety News:
"Federal and state officials are investigating another deadly Salmonella outbreak traced to papayas imported from Mexico, but they have not named retailers that sold the contaminated fruit."
"At least 14 people across Arizona, California and Colorado have been confirmed with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Anatum,"
"A dozen of the victims live in California. At least four of them reported buying and eating papayas from the same retail chain before becoming ill."
"Neither the California retailer — which uses Bravo Produce as a supplier of papayas — nor any of the other retailers implicated in the other three ongoing outbreaks have been named by the FDA, which is overseeing papaya recalls by importers and distributors."
