Eagle Produce of Scottsdale, Arizona has recalled 1,760 cartons of cantaloupes because the melons may be contaminated with Salmonella.
The recall is the result of a routine and random test directed by the USDA and carried out by the New York Department of Agriculture. The company has ceased the production and distribution of the cantaloupes.
No illnesses have been reported.
The recalled cantaloupes were sold at Sam’s Club between June 2 and June 17, 2011. Sam’s Club has withdrawn all cantaloupes and notified members who purchased them.
The brown cardboard cartons, which contain nine melons, have the Kandy logo in white with the word ‘Cantaloupes’ in white lettering on a red background. The lot code 147 count 9 is printed on the side of the carton. Each melon bears a Kandy sticker with the words ‘Cantaloupe USA.’
Consumers who have uneaten cantaloupes affected by this recall may contact Eagle Produce at 480-323-6177 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MST (Arizona time).© Food Safety News
