Health officials say a nationwide salmonella outbreak linked to a certain brand of papaya has already killed one person in New York City.

Authorities tied the outbreak to the 'Caribena' brand Yellow Maridol papayas.

There are 47 salmonella cases nationwide - 10 of those are in New York City. One elderly patient has died. The FDA plans to issue a recall.

In the meantime, health officials say you should ask the store or restaurant who supplied the papayas before you buy them.
