Cavi Brand Papayas Linked to Salmonella Outbreak

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating after dozens of people across the country have contracted a multidrug-resistant form of salmonella believed to be linked to dog treats.

The agencies say traceback points to Agroson's LLC BB #:275358 as the sole distributor of Mexican papayas that made consumers from this outbreak sick. The CDC considers this to be a rather grim number, and it notes that the typical hospitalization rate for Salmonella is around 20 percent, suggesting that this is a particularly serious situation. Those states are Connecticut, Florida, Massachusettes, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Texas.

Illnesses started on dates ranging from January 14 to June 16 this year, but most have occurred since April. If you have these papayas in your home, do not eat them.

The FDA has named Cavi brand whole fresh maradol papayas as the likely source of 71 cases of Salmonella Uganda.

The CDC is urging consumers to not eat any Cavi brand whole, fresh papayas. The CDC said to wash and sanitize places where Cavi brand papayas were stored, like countertops, refrigerator drawers or shelves. Cavi brand papayas distributed by Agroson's LLC of the Bronx, NY, would have been available for purchase by cases in the time prior to illness at these stores. Another patient from Texas who was also reported ill had traveled to NY before becoming ill.

Symptoms from getting sick from salmonella include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps within three days.

Since the last update on June 28, 2019, 9 ill people have been added to this investigation.

Most people recover without treatment, but some people may need to be hospitalized.

Children younger than 5 years, pregnant women, adults 65 and older and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.
