View Comments

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – The California Department of Public Health is investigating a foodborne illness outbreak associated with salmonella-tainted mangoes that has sickened 73 people.

Authorities say they are still probing what prompted the outbreak of salmonella Braenderup cases in California and trying to identify which specific mango brands or sources may be tied to the illnesses.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency also recently reported illnesses resulting from the same bacterial strain.

State officials say they are working with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Canadian public health and food safety agencies to pinpoint the cause.
