Federal and state health officials are investigating a multistate, cross-border Salmonella outbreak linked to mangoes imported from Mexico, which may have sickened more than 100 people in the United States and Canada.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control have not yet released any information about the outbreak or announced a recall, but California, Washington, and Canada have all reported illnesses linked to the same strain of Salmonella Braenderup. California reported 73 ill, Washington reported 6 ill, and Canada has reported 22 illnesses linked to contaminated mangoes.

“Preliminary data indicate that mango consumption is associated with an increase in the number of Salmonella Braenderup cases in California,” said California Department of Public Health spokesman Matt Conens on Monday. “As of today, there are 73 cases with this outbreak strain that have been confirmed.”

Of the patients who have been interviewed in California, 67 percent reported eating mangoes, according to Conens, but state officials said they have not yet identified specific mango brand or source yet.
