 Nearly a million mangoes are being recalled because they may be tainted with salmonella.

The Daniella-brand mangoes were grown and harvested in Mexico and sold in the United States between July 12 and Aug. 29.

The mangoes were sold as individual fruit with the sticker brand "Daniella." Each fruit was also marked with a small sticker with one of the following codes: 4051, 4959, 4311, 4584 or 3114.

The mangoes were sold at supermarkets including Costco, Whole Foods, Save Mart Supermarkets, Food 4 Less, Ralph's, Topco stores, El Super, Kroger, Giant-Eagle, Stop & Shop, and Aldi.

If you bought any of these don’t eat them, throw them away.

Federal officials are investigating 105 illnesses involving salmonella Braenderup that may be linked to the tropical fruit. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said there are reported cases in 16 states since July 1.

Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, a common bacterial illness which can lead to diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within eight to 72 hours, as well as chills, headache, nausea and vomiting that can last up to seven days. Salmonella infections can be life-threatening, especially to those with weak immune systems such as infants and the elderly, the CDC says.
