In an announcement by the FDA and the Pennsylvania DOH, 31 cases of Salmonella in the state have been linked to Tailor Cut Produce, a New Jersey-based manufacturer. The current health status of those with Salmonella in this Tailor Cut Produce salmonella outbreak are unknown.
According to the announcement, traceback evidence has found that a fruit mix with cantaloupe, honeydew, pineapple, and grapes are the likely source of the outbreak. The FDA and Pennsylvania DOH are in talks with Tailor Cut Produce. No recall has yet to be initiated. “We recommend that any facility who use Tailor Cut Produce pre-cut fruit to immediately stop and throw it away,” Secretary of Health Dr. Rachel Levine said.
Anyone showing symptoms of Salmonella illness should seek medical attention from their physician.
