It seems like every week now there is a food scare. Last week it was salmonella peanut butter, this week it looks like it’s going to be cantaloupes.
The Dole Fresh Fruit Company has recalled several thousands of imported cantaloupes after some of the fruit tested positive for salmonella.
Dole stated the recall covers approximately 6,104 cartons of Costa Rican cantaloupes distributed to retailers in the United States between February 5 & February 8. The FDA is strongly urging consumers to thoroughly was their cantaloupes & other melons before slicing.
