August 10, 2011: Salmonella Agona Outbreak Prompts Another Recall

GHSW, LLC of Houston, Texas recalled its fresh cut fruit products containing papaya, because the products have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella Agona. The recall, which occurred on July 27, 2011, was prompted after GHSW learned that the papayas used in their products were associated with the Agromod papaya recall of July 23, 2011.  Agromod papayas were linked to a multistate Salmonella Agona food poisoning outbreak, which has sickened 99 individuals in 23 states.
