Meijer recalls fresh-cut, whole cantaloupe after salmonella test
Meijer is recalling whole and fresh-cut cantaloupe products after a sampling program in Michigan detected salmonella.
The fruit was supplied by Eagle Produce LLC, doing business as Martori Farms, Aguila, Ariz., according to a news release from Meijer. The products were sold between Sept. 26 and Oct. 5 in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.
No illnesses have been reported in connection with the recall, according to the release.
The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development reported the positive test during a routine sampling program.
The whole cantaloupes are labelled with a Kandy Brand sticker from Eagle Produce, according to the release. If a whole cantaloupe from Meijer doesn’t have a label and was purchased Sept. 26-Oct. 5, it should be considered part of the recall, according to the retailer.
The 26 products include fresh-cut cantaloupe, some with other fruit, in a variety of clear plastic packaging under the Meijer brand, along with three items from Meijer gas stations. The list is on Meijer’s website.
