Amid concerns raised over contamination of Mexican mangoes with salmonella, federal officials have declared to pull out the species from the markets. They have suggested extending the recall of the product.
Previously, Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) warned against the use of the mangoes, which was especially made for western provinces.
Further, even US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recalled the mangoes sold in the market under the brand name of Daniella. It is being suspected that the mangoes have been infected by salmonella.
On Wednesday, CFIA affirmed that mangoes contaminated with Salmonella Braenderup bacteria, have been introduced in the markets across the country.
The concerns regarding the infection were flagged off after 21 people in British Columbia and Alberta, were confirmed to have contracted the bacteria, after they ate the mangoes.
Marsha Taylor, an epidemiologist with the BC Centre for Disease Control, said, "If you're experiencing symptoms of salmonella like GI illness, diarrhea, vomiting, and abdominal pain and in case you have eaten a mango then the best thing is always to see a doctor".
Taylor suggested that a health-care provider or doctor will assist such people well and in case they require treatment, then appropriate treatment will also be provided.
