Recall Alert: Mamey Frozen Fruit Bars

Posted: Updated:

Fruiti Pops, Inc. of Santa Fe Springs has recalled its mamey frozen fruit bars because of a possible link to a rare U.S. outbreak of typhoid fever.  The company said Thursday that the fruit bars were distributed in California, Arizona and Texas since May 2009.

Fruiti Pops says retail stores, ice cream trucks and vending machines sold the frozen fruit bars, which have the UPC number 763734000097.

The company says the frozen fruit bars were made from contaminated mamey pulp that Goya Foods, Inc. voluntarily recalled on Aug. 12, after it was linked to a typhoid fever outbreak in California and Nevada. So far no illnesses have been reported from the mamey fruit bars.

Mamey or zapote is a fruit popular in Latin America and the Carribean.
