HONOLULU -

The state Department of Health confirmed Friday that the brand of mangoes being recalled has been distributed in Hawaii, but there is currently no direct link to the Salmonella illness.

Fruit distributor Splendid Products is recalling several lots of Daniella brand mangoes, which may have triggered an outbreak of salmonella that has sickened more than 100 people in 16 states.

The company said the recalled mangoes come from Mexico and carry the Daniella brand sticker.  The affected lot numbers are: 3114, 4051, 4311, 4584 or 4959.

The mangoes were sold at various U.S. retailers between July 12 and August 29.

Splendid said it voluntarily recalled the product "out of an abundance of caution," after consulting government authorities.

Federal health officials are still investigating what caused the outbreak of 103 cases of salmonella Braenderup infections.  U.S. and Canadian authorities are trying to identify which mango brands or sources may have caused the illnesses.  No deaths have been reported.
