What’s the problem?

May 7, 2012 – The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) issued a press release today stating that Caribe Produce LTD Co. is currently recalling Papaya Maradol, Caribeña Brand papayas because they may be tainted with salmonella.

The 286 cases of papayas being recalled were packed in 35 lb. cartons marked with the words ‘Caribeña’ and ‘Product of Mexico’ on the side. The papayas were intended to be sold individually, with each one bearing a label that states ‘3112 CARIBEÑA Papaya MARADOL PRODUCT OF MEXICO.’

The problem was discovered after routine sampling by Caribe Produce LTD Co. revealed the presence of salmonella in the papayas. Consumers who have purchased papayas with the specific labeling listed above should discard them immediately or return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. To date, no illnesses have been reported in connection with this recall.
