If you're a fan of papayas, you may want to skip Cavi brand papayas until further notice. UPI reports that a Cavi brand of papayas "are likely the source" of a salmonella outbreak. According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday, so far the outbreak was reported in eight states: Connecticut, Florida, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Texas. The CDC warns people not to eat, sell, or distribute, Cavi brand whole, fresh papayas distributed by AgroSons, of Bronx, N.Y. Since January, 71 people have had salmonella infections. 27 have been hospitalized. Most people affected by the outbreak also happen to be older than 60. Salmonella poisoning symptoms can pop up as fever, diarrhea, and/or stomach cramps. They usually start about 12 to 72 after eating contaminated food, and can last up to a week.
