NY company's papayas linked to Salmonella outbreak

The illness usually lasts four to seven days, and most people recover without treatment. Those states are Connecticut, Florida, Massachusettes, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Texas.

The agencies say traceback points to Agroson's LLC BB #:275358 as the sole distributor of Mexican papayas that made consumers from this outbreak sick.

To date, there have been no positive product samples, according to information updated by the FDA on July 5. Illnesses might not yet be reported due to the time it takes between when a person becomes ill and when the illness is reported.

Illnesses started on dates ranging from January 14 to June 16, with most illnesses have occurred since April 2019.

Of the 71 total people, 27 ill people were reported in NY.

Report your illness to the health department.

The CDC reported Wednesday it and the FDA are investigating an outbreak of salmonella across 13 states - and it's linked to contact with pig ear dog treats.

In some people, the illness may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized. Half (50%) of ill people are female. The infections have resulted in over two dozen hospitalizations and, while no deaths have been reported, health officials are urging consumers to avoid the brand in question.

The administration also strongly advises importers, suppliers, and distributors, as well as restaurants, retailers, and other food service providers from all states to not sell or distribute whole, fresh papayas from Agroson's LLC that are labeled under the Cavi brand. The law firm has brought Salmonella lawsuits against such companies as Cargill, ConAgra, Peanut Corporation of America, Sheetz, Taco Bell, Subway and Wal-Mart.

If you believe you may be ill as a result of consuming a tainted fruit, contact your doctor.
