Cantaloupe a Favorite Summer Melon-Recalled

Submitted by

canteloupe 150x150 Cantaloupe a Favorite Summer Melon RecalledOne of my favorite summer melons is cantaloupe.  Cantaloupe is an awesome source of Fiber, vitamins A, C and even has a little bit of calcium and iron.  And if you eat an entire medium melon (about 5″ in diameter) you are looking at about 200 calories or less.

Lucky for me, I live in Bucks County, PA and there are so many awesome farmers markets to pick these sweet melons up locally and inexpensively.

Cantaloupe Recall:
[Recently, a company called Eagle Produce, LLC in Arizona has announced a limited recall of cantaloupe. These cantaloups was sold at Sam’s Club in Pottsville, PA and Johnstown, NY between June 2 and June 17th.  These melons were under a random USDA test in New York.  They were in brown cardboard cartons each with the Kandy logo in white with the word ‘Cantaloupes’ in white lettering on a red background-lot code 147 count 9.  The melons bear a sticker with the words ‘Cantaloupe USA’.

Salmonella is a food born illness that can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections especially in young children, frail or elderly people, and people with weakened immune systems. Symptoms of Salmonella include: fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.   Salmonella, in rare instances, can cause severe illnesses such as arterial infections (like aneurysms) endocarditis and arthritis.]

From the FDA website:
“Consumers who believe that they are in possession of uneaten cantaloupes affected by this recall may contact Eagle Produce at (480) 323-6177 Monday through Friday 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM MST (Arizona time).”

*Remember to wash your cantaloupe before you cut through it to lesson your risks of food born illnesses such as salmonella.

* Always prepare meats such as chicken on a separate cutting board- washing the board thoroughly in warm sudsy water or the dishwasher when you are finished.

* Always wash your hands after handling raw meat.
