Meijer Whole Cantaloupe and Cut Trays Recalled For Salmonella

Meijer whole cantaloupe and select cut cantaloupe fruit trays and bowls are being recalled for possible Salmonella contamination. Eagle Produce LLC of Aguila, Arizona is the supplier. The recall is the result of a sampling investigation conducted by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

The Meijer whole cantaloupe and fruit trays and bowls were sold between September 26 and October 5, 2020. They were offered for sale at all Meijer stores in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky, and Wisconsin. No illnesses have been reported to date in connection with this recall.

The Meijer whole cantaloupe that is being recalled has a sticker label stating “Kandy Brand from Eagle Produce, LLC.” If there is no sticker, you should consider the cantaloupe part of the recall. Meijer may have used these cantaloupes in store made products.

You can see pictures of product packages at the FDA web site. If you purchased any of these products, do not eat them. Throw them away in a double bagged package in a secure garbage can, or take them back to the place of purchase for a full refund.

Wash your hands with soap and water after handling these items. You should also clean out the refrigerator where you stored the fruit with a mild bleach solution to kill any remaining bacteria.

Symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning include a fever, nausea, vomiting, stomach pains and cramps, abdominal pain and cramps, and diarrhea that may be bloody or watery. If you do develop these symptoms, call your doctor.
