A rare outbreak of Typhoid Fever in the United States has been linked to frozen Mamey (a reddish tropical fruit also known as zapote or sapote) used to make fruit smoothies. Epidemiological evidence has pointed the Centers for Disease Control to Goya Foods, Inc. who have since recalled packages of the frozen fruit product. Seven cases of Salmonella Typhi have been confirmed to date (3 in California and 4 in Nevada).
