Papayas from a Carica de Campeche farm tested positive for five different strains of salmonella bacteria, which are linked to the 26 cases reported in New Jersey since July 21, according to the Center for Disease Control.

The outbreak investigation as of Aug. 8 had expanded to include another strain of Salmonella. Here's what you need to know:

  • Epidemiologic and laboratory evidence indicates that Maradol papayas imported from Mexico are the likely source of this multistate outbreak.
  • FDA tested other papayas imported from Mexico and found they were contaminated with several types of Salmonella.
  • CDC recommends that consumers not eat, restaurants not serve, and retailers not sell Maradol papayas from Mexico until we learn more.
