Over sixteen states have been affected after brands were forced to recall papaya due to a salmonella outbreak.
The Food and Drug Administration [FDA] is forcing over three brands to recall the food items after one person died and over 100 fell ill since May.
The Centers For Disease Control linked the salmonella cases to papayas purchased from a store in Baltimore, Maryland, reports Food And Wine.
States now affected include Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin.
It is likely the FDA will force even more companies to dispose of the Maradol papayas grown on the Carica de Campeche farm in Mexico.
