September 4, 2012 – More than 100 people in at least 16 different states have developed salmonella food poisoning (salmonellosis) after eating Daniella brand mangoes contained in various products that are now being recalled nationwide. The contaminated mangoes, which were imported from Mexico, were originally recalled last week in response to a growing salmonella poisoning outbreak. Salmonella is an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems.
Daniella Mango Lawsuit Update 9/7/12: A recent nationwide recall has resulted in what is widely believed to be the first salmonella food poisoning lawsuit connected to Daniella brand mangoes. The claim was filed on behalf of a 92-year-old woman who was hospitalized late last month after eating one of the recalled mangoes. Click here to learn more.

Salmonella Food Poisoning
Eating food contaminated with salmonella bacteria can lead to salmonellosis, an extremely serious bacterial foodborne illness. Salmonellosis infections can be potentially fatal, and are especially dangerous to children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems. The most common signs and symptoms of a salmonella food poisoning infection include:
- abdominal chills
- vomiting that can last up to a week
Most otherwise healthy individuals recover from salmonellosis without medical treatment. However, you should always consult your healthcare professional immediately if you begin to experience symptoms such as fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or abdominal cramps. Salmonella food poisoning treatments may include:
- avoiding solid food until symptoms subside;
- drinking plenty of fluids to prevent dehydration;
If salmonellosis does not resolve quickly, hospitalization and rehydration with intravenous fluids may be necessary.
