A limited number of cantaloupes shipped from Arizona to upstate New York have been recalled due to a potential Salmonella contamination risk.
Eagle Produce is voluntarily recalling the item, although there have been no illnesses reported.
The recalled fruit was served by the Johnstown, NY and Pottsville, PA distribution centers. It involves an estimated 1760 cartons of melons with lot code 147 count 9 printed on the side.
Salmonella can cause serious and sometimes deadly infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with a weakened immune system. If you are concerned that you may have ingested any of the recalled melon, please call your medical doctor immediately.
Consumers who believe that they have some of the cantaloupes affected by this recall may contact Eagle Produce at (480) 323-6177.
