Maya Overseas Foods Inc. Cashew Split Recall Announcement – On July 10, 2015, Maya Overseas Foods Inc. of Maspeth, NY, announced a recall for approximately 8000 lbs. of its Cashew Split because the product may be contaminated with Salmonella. Salmonella is a type of bacterium that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems.
Cashew Split Recall Information
According to a company press release, the Cashew Split was distributed between February 18, 2015 and March 20, 2015, to retailers and restaurants located in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, and Florida by direct trucking and delivery.
The following cashew products were subject to the Maya Overseas Foods Inc., recall:
“Maya brand Cashew Split was sold uncoded in 7 oz. (UPC 020843230389), 14 oz. (UPC 020843230716), 28 oz. (UPC 020843230327) and 5 lbs. (UPC 020843230303) clear plastic pouches. The Cashew Split was also sold in bulk 50 lbs. tins.”
The recall was prompted after FDA testing at the company supplying Maya Overseas Foods with their cashews, revealed that the bulk Cashew Split contained the bacteria. The company has ceased the production and distribution of the product as FDA and the supplier continue their investigation as to what caused the problem.
Salmonella Food Poisoning Symptoms may include diarrhea (sometimes bloody), abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, and joint pain. Symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning usually appear within 6 to 72 hours after eating a Salmonella contaminated food.
