10 more people hospitalized due to salmonella linked to papayas

Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Papayas in 19 States

OH has joined 18 other states reporting an infection from Salmonella bacteria attributed to recalled Maradol papayas from Mexico. Ill people range in age from less than 1 year to 95, with a median age of 39.

With dozens of people reported getting sick from a recent Salmonella outbreak, the Centers for Disease Control are urging customers to not eat Maradol papayas from Caraica de Campeche farm in Mexico.

While one distributor issued a plea this week to consumers, asking them to differentiate the recalled papayas from those grown in Guatemala, Brazil, Formosa and other parts of Mexico, the CDC made it clear that if the consumer does not know the origin of a papaya, they should not consume it, and should throw it away. One death was reported from New York City. The state with the most cases and the only death so far is NY, with 39 patients.

Papaya traced to the Carica de Campeche farm in Campeche appears to be the likely source, the FDA said Monday Aug. 7.

The FDA said it is working with Mexican food safety authorities to conduct inspections and other follow up activities.

Pahlaj Nihalani sacked, Prasoon Joshi is new censor board chief
Nihalani, who was appointed in January 2015, would have stepped down next January as part of his three-year-appointment. In 2007, Joshi won the National Award for Best Lyrics for Taare Zameen Par and a second one for Chittagong in 2013.

Papayas from the Carica de Campeche farm tested positive for five different strains of salmonella bacteria, which can cause diarrhea, vomiting, stomach pain and fever.

The Campeche farm has been added to an import alert which allows FDA field personnel to stop fresh produce from entering the US from the farm until it's proven to have resolved issues that caused the bacterial contamination.

Three brands of Maradol papayas have been recalled: Caribeña brand, distributed by Grande Produce; certain Cavi brand papayas distributed by Agroson's; and Valery brand papayas, distributed by Freshtex Produce, LLC.

Among 98 people with available information, 67% are Hispanic.
