La Nuestra Brand Mamey Ice Cream Recalled due to Risk of Salmonella Typhi

. By
Washington, DCMontalvan's Sales, Inc. of Ontario, CA has voluntarily recalled "La Nuestra" brand frozen Mamey Ice Cream due to a potential health risk from Salmonella Typhi. Typhoid fever is a life-threatening illness caused by the bacterium Salmonella Typhi.

Salmonella Typhi lives only in humans. Infection results from eating food or drink beverages that have been handled by a person who is shedding S. Typhi or if sewage contaminated with S. Typhi bacteria gets into the water you use for drinking or washing food. Once S. Typhi bacteria are eaten or drunk, they multiply and spread into the bloodstream. The body reacts with fever, severe abdominal pain, and other signs and symptoms. Most ill persons need to be hospitalized for antibiotic treatment. Persons with typhoid fever carry the bacteria in their bloodstream and intestinal tract. In addition, a small number of persons, called carriers, recover from typhoid fever but continue to carry the bacteria. Both ill persons and carriers shed S. Typhi in their feces (stool).

The recalled "La Nuestra" brand Mamey Ice Cream was distributed in the states of NV, and CA, through retail stores & restaurant establishments.

The La Nuestra brand Mamey Ice Cream comes in a 1 pint paper container & also a 1.5 gallon plastic pail. All lot numbers are affected by this recall. The UPC Codes for the 1 pint size ice cream is 7-56869-17610-2 and the UPC Code for the 1.5 gallon size of ice cream is 7-56869-17599-0.

This recall was initiated after Montalvan's Sales, Inc. was notified by FDA and CDC that the affected product is was made with La Nuestra Mamey Pulp which was implicated via a strong epidemiologic link to a recent outbreak of Typhoid Fever in several Western States.
