According to the Centers for Disease Control, 64 more people have become sick since July 21, bringing the total to 109 cases.

A third produce importer in the U.S.is recalling whole, fresh maradol papayas grown and packed by Carica de Campeche in Mexico because a deadly, ongoing Salmonella outbreak has been traced to papayas from the farm.

Thirty six people in NY and 26 in New Jersey have reported illnesses, but so far only one case has been reported in MI.

Six more states have reported ill people, including Connecticut, Delaware, Michigan, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Wisconsin.

The FDA advises not only that consumers dispose of these papayas if they have them, but states, "For refrigerators and other food preparation surfaces and food cutting utensils that may have come in contact with potentially contaminated papayas, it is very important that the consumers thoroughly clean and sanitize these areas and items".

The Food and Drug Administration has identified the source of the outbreak as the Carica de Campeche farm in Campeche, Mexico, which distributes papayas to at least two other brands that have already been recalled.

"However, the product may have been further distributed outside the state of IL", according to the recall notice on the Food and Drug Administration's website.

Freshtex Produce LLC of Alamo, TX, posted its recall of "Valery" brand maradol papayas from the farm in Southern Mexico on Monday.

The CDC urges people to avoid eating yellow Maradol papayas, and asked restaurants and retailers not to serve/sell.

Grande Produce recalled Caribeña-brand papayas July 26 that were shipped July 10-19.

Consumers who have any of these papayas in their homes should throw them away.

The company has stopped importing papayas from that grower.

Investigation detailsThe FDA has been working with state officials and the CDC to investigate the ongoing outbreak, which was first identified by Maryland public health staff investigating a cluster of Salmonella Kiambu illnesses.

In its recall notice, Agroson's reported that it is taking samples of each load of imported produce to a private lab to be tested for salmonella.

The import alert was put in place after FDA analysis of Mexican papayas between May 2011 and August 2011 found salmonella in 33 of 211 samples.
