Wawa Recalls Fruit Products in Five States
WAWA, Pa. -- Wawa Inc. has recalled certain products containing mangoes at its convenience stores in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. The company's newest stores in Florida are not affected by the recall.
The retailer's move was prompted by a voluntary, precautionary recall issued by the supplier Missa Bay, a wholly owned subsidiary of Ready Pac Foods Inc., for products containing Daniella Brand mangoes. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) indentified Daniella Brand mangoes as having the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.
Wawa added the recall affects products that were potentially processed on common equipment with the Daniella Brand mangoes. Both Wawa and Ready Pac Foods said there have been no reported illnesses related the products.
The c-store chain's recall only affects products with specific date codes. The company made those available on its website here.
In early August, Ready Pac Foods recalled apples shipped to Wawa Inc. stores and several quick-service restaurant locations, including McDonald's Corp. and Burger King Worldwide Inc. locations, due to listeria concerns. In that move, Missa Bay voluntarily recalled 293,488 cases and 296,224 individual packs of fruit, vegetable and sandwich products containing the apples that were sent to 36 states, as CSNews Online previously reported.
