Pacific Organic Produce, San Francisco, CA is voluntarily recalling a limited number of cases of organic Tommy Atkins mangos (PLU numbers 94051 & 94959) that were sold under the Purity Organic brand between the dates of April 14, 2014 and May 2, 2014 due to a possible health risk from Listeria monocytogenes. No illnesses have been reported in association with the recall and no other mangos or products under the Purity Organic brand are being recalled.

No illnesses have been reported to date. However, the recall was issued as a precaution because a single sample in a FDA sample yielded a positive result for Listeria monocytogenes. Pacific Organic Produce is coordinating closely with regulatory officials and has contacted its customers to ensure that any remaining recalled products are removed. Listeria monocytogenes is an organism that can cause foodborne illness in a person who consumes a food item contaminated with it. Symptoms of infection may include fever, muscle aches and gastrointestinal symptoms such as nausea or diarrhea. The illness primarily impacts pregnant women and adults with weakened immune systems. Most healthy adults and children rarely become seriously ill.

The PLU number is printed in the middle of the PLU sticker on the fruit. The mangos were shipped to retailers and distributors in limited quantities within five (5) U.S. states (Arizona, California, Colorado, New Jersey and Texas).

Only the specific PLU numbers and sell dates identified above are included in this recall. Consumers who have any remaining product with these Product Codes purchased between the dates of April 14, 2014 and May 2, 2014 should not consume it, but rather should discard it. Consumers should retain their store receipts, PLU stickers or any other proof of purchase they may have. Retailers and consumers with questions may call Amy Rosenoff at Pacific Organic Produce customer service at 415-673-5555, which is open 8:00 am to 4:00 pm (PT) Monday - Friday.
