    If you bought mangoes in New Jersey recently, you might want to double-check the label before eating them.

    Pacific Organic Produce is recalling Purity Organic mangoes after one of the fruits tested positive for listeria, according to the Food and Drug Administration. No illnesses have been reported from the mangoes, and none of Pacific Organic Produce's other products are being recalled.

    The states affected by the recall include New Jersey, Arizona, California, Colorado and Texas.

    People who bought mangoes with PLU Nos. 94051 and 94959 between April 14 and May 2 should throw them away and take shopping receipts to grocers for refunds, according to the FDA. 

    Symptoms of a listeria infection include fever, muscle aches, nausea and diarrhea, the FDA says. Most children and adults rarely become seriously ill, but the illness can affect pregnant women and others with weakened immune systems.
