If you bought cantaloupes from Sam’s Club, don’t eat them! The company that supplies the melons has issued a recall following testing by the New York Department of Agriculture. The agency says they may be contaminated with salmonella. The melons come from Eagle Produce of Scottsdale, Arizona. The USDA says the tainted cantaloupes were sold in the discount retailer between June 2 and June 17 of this year. Here’s more details from the Food Safety News:
The brown cardboard cartons, which contain nine melons, have the Kandy logo in white with the word ‘Cantaloupes’ in white lettering on a red background. The lot code 147 count 9 is printed on the side of the carton. Each melon bears a Kandy sticker with the words ‘Cantaloupe USA.’
Consumers who have uneaten cantaloupes affected by this recall may contact Eagle Produce at 480-323-6177 Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MST (Arizona time).
