A papaya recall was issued by Agromod Produce, Inc. 97 cases of salmonella contamination have been reported. 10 of those cases resulted in hospitalization. The recalled papayas were imported from Mexico. They were distributed across the country before July 23. Papaya samples tested positive for differing strains of salmonella. Currently, the FDA is working with state authorities to ensure that papaya is not sold to the public. They are also working to determine how they became contaminated in the first place. The FDA is advising that consumers check the label on any fresh papayas they may have purchased. Throw them away immediately if you own the affected produce.
According to news reports, the FDA is working with Agromod to determine how the contamination began. As a Germantown car accident lawyer, I hope that nobody is adversely affected by this product.
