Meijer Is Recalling Cantaloupe Over Salmonella Worries
It seems like this is a big week for recalls, especially those involving fruit.
Earlier this week, we posted the story about the recall of pre-cut fruit at Walmart over worries about listeria. Now, we're looking at another recall, this time involving Meijer stores and cantaloupe.
Meijer has issued a multi-state recall for whole cantaloupe and select cut cantaloupe fruit trays and bowls over concerns that the products may be contaminated with salmonella. The products were sold between September 26th and October 5th at Meijer stores throughout Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky and Wisconsin, according to a recall notice posted on the FDA’s website.
The recall notice said Meijer may have used cantaloupe ingredients that originated from Eagle Produce LLC in store-made products. The following products are packaged in a clear plastic container under the Meijer brand label and are included in the recall:
