A recall of mangoes has been announced, and it affects nearly a million Daniella brand mangoes.

The recalled mangoes were sold at various retail stores throughout the United States between July 12, 2012 and August 29, 2012, and can be identified by a small Daniella brand sticker, along with one of the following PLU numbers: 3114, 4051, 4311, 4584 or 4959.
The CDC is reporting that to date, a total of 105 people have been infected with the outbreak strain of Salmonella Braenderup from sixteen different states including California, Delaware, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin.
