Recall: Cantaloupe

On November 17, 2023, The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced a recall of cantaloupes that have a label with the words “Malichita”, “4050”, and “Product of Mexico/produit du Mexique” due to possible contamination with Salmonella. Salmonella is a type of bacteria that can cause serious illness in vulnerable individuals such as young children, elderly people, and those with weakened immune systems. Symptoms of Salmonella infection (diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps) usually occur within 12 to 72 hours after eating contaminated food and usually lasts 4-7 days.
