Food Lion, among other stores, has been notified that it is part of the national Splendid Products voluntary recall for Daniella mangoes.
Upon notification from the supplier, all affected items were immediately removed from store shelves.
“When there is a recall like that, they send out a company wide recall. We did have some that we had to pull, and it’s been taken care of,” said Marty Bugguss, store manager of Elkin’s Food Lion.
Splendid Products voluntarily recalled Daniella mangoes this week due to possible salmonella contamination. The recalled items include mangoes with PLU No. 4051 and purchase dates would range from Aug. 14 to Aug. 29.
In addition, one packaged produce item sold at Food Lion stores that contained Daniella mangoes has also been removed from shelves. The packaged produce item would be labeled, “Garden Highway Mango Medley,” and would have the UPC code (8-26766-21437). This product would have a sell-by date of Aug. 28.
The company is in the process of notifying loyalty card customers via email who purchased the Daniella mangoes or fresh fruit product, as well as updating the product recall section of the companies’ respective websites.
Customers who may have purchased the affected products are urged to dispose of the items and bring the receipt or sticker to their local Food Lion, Harveys or Reid’s stores for a full refund. These products should not be consumed.
