Goya Recalls Mamey Pulp Over Salmonella Concerns

Goya.com

Goya has recalled the 14-ounce packages of frozen mamey pulp.

 

Goya Foods, the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the United States, is recalling 14-ounce packages of frozen mamey pulp over concerns it may be contaminated with salmonella.

Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children and others with weakened immune systems. No illnesses have been reported so far and the company has not said what led to the concerns.

The recalled mamey pulp was available at stores in Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington.

Goya boasts over 1,500 products including beverages, condiments, pantry items and frozen foods.

NBC DFW called Goya Foods to ask for comment on the recall and was transferred to several departments at the company's headquarters in Secaucus, N.J.  We ultimately ended up being transferred to their IT helpdesk -- who were unaware of the recall.  So, unfortunately, we aren't sure what you should do if you've purchased the mamey pulp - aside from not eating it. 

So far, there has been no further comment from the company and no formal news release has been published to their website at this time. To find out more from Goya, try your luck at 800-275-4692.
