Goya Foods Inc.

is recalling 14-ounce packages of its frozen mamey pulp sold in 11 states for possible salmonella contamination.

A salmonella infection can cause a fever, diarrhea, nausea and abdominal pain. No illnesses have been reported so far from the recalled mamey fruit pulp sold in stores in Alaska, California, Colorado, Hawaii, New Mexico, Nevada, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Washington. The plastic package does not have an expiration date, but does have the UPC code of 041331090803.

Consumers who bought the frozen fruit should throw it away and call Goya Foods to get a refund at 800-275-4692, weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Eastern Time.

The Secaucus, N.J. company issued the recall after a sample package in Las Vegas tested by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration showed salmonella contamination. Goya Foods is working with government regulators to find the source. Goya Foods already reviewed its food processor's safety documentation and determined the manufacturer was in compliance and didn't show a salmonella contamination.
