FDA links salmonella investigation to NY papaya importer

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

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 FDA advises that suppliers and distributors do not sell whole, fresh papayas from Agroson's LLC that are labeled under the Cavi brand. Our Salmonella lawyers have litigated Salmonella cases stemming from outbreaks traced to a variety of foods, such as cantaloupe, tomatoes, ground turkey, salami, sprouts, cereal, peanut butter, and food served in restaurants.

Do not eat fruit salads or other mixes that include any Cavi brand papayas.

CDC officials say those who are at risk for being infected should wash their hands thoroughly after handling dog treats, don't let pets lick your mouth or face after eating treats, and keep small children away from the treats. When in doubt, don't eat the papaya. Follow these five steps to clean your refrigerator.

As for what the CDC recommends going forward, it goes without saying that you should avoid Cavi brand papayas at all cost, even if some of them have been eaten without issue. Distributors do not need to withhold papayas from distribution, with the exception of the Cavi brand.

The illnesses occurred in Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Texas.

Write down what you ate in the week before you started to get sick.

As part of the epidemiological investigation, health officials conducted interviews about consumption and exposures in the week prior to onset of illness.

Assist public health investigators by answering questions about your illness.
