A quick update many of you may not have heard of the Papaya Recall going on right now. The FDA just sent out a new update on the deadly outbreak of Salmonella. Many have been hospitalized, with 47 cases and 1 death. If you think you may have purchased a Caribena brand papaya, please throw it out and sanitize the area where you have prepared it.
The Maradol Papaya is the focus of the investigation.
These papayas are oval shaped with green skin that turns yellow when ripe. They can be 3lbs and up with salmon color flesh inside. Since you have no control over what type or brand manufacturers or restaurants are serving it is of good advice to not consume papaya at this time.
The States that are effected at this time are IA, KY, LA, MA, MD, MN, NJ, NY, PA, TX, UT, VA. The CDC is still collecting samples so for the time being if you have a Maradol Papaya at home or any Papaya throw it out, as they say, When in doubt throw it out!
With this latest update to include 12 States in the U.S Here is what you need to know.
Please share this with you family and friends.
Thank you for spending a little time with us, Here is to your continued good health.
Take good care,
Miriam Vigoa and Kristi Linebaugh
