Cut Fruit Express, Inc. of Inver Grove Heights, MN issued a voluntary recall of products distributed through September 5, 2012, because they were made with cantaloupes recalled by Fresno, CA-based DFI Marketing Thursday after a federal testing program revealed the presence of the bacteria in a sample.
The fresh cut fruits subject to this recall were sold in Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
As many as half a million cantaloupes are included in the DFI recall.
Consumers who purchased Cut Fruit Express products can return them to their point of purchase for a full refund.
Cut Fruits is advising retailers to check their inventories to make sure that none of the affected products are available for sale.
Only products with certain use-by dates are subject to this recall, according to the company, however those dates are not currently listed in the recall notice.
