Papayas from Mexico

Thirty-two more salmonella cases, including 10 hospitalizations, linked to yellow Maradol papayas from Mexico have been reported by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday, bringing the number of people affected to 141 across 19 states. This includes one death and 45 total hospitalizations.

Officials with the CDC have linked the salmonella outbreak to Maradol papayas from the Carica de Campeche farm, which are sold under brand names including Caribeña, Cavi and Valery. If you are unsure if a papaya came from the farm, you should ask the place of purchase or just throw it out.
