California public health officials are looking into salmonella-tainted mangoes… because 73 people have gotten VERY sick from them!
Also terrifying is that they're still trying to identify which specific mango brands or sources might be tied to the illnesses — but then you realize that it's not really that scary because what harm is there in just not eating mangoes for a few weeks?
They're working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and Canadian public health and food safety agencies to pinpoint the cause.
Put down the mango… for now!
