Recall Item of the Week: Cantaloupes
Now the spotlight has shown its disapproving face on cantaloupes that were shipped to LA and Frisco.
A wholesale produce importer on Friday recalled several thousand cartons of cantaloupes after some tested positive for salmonella. Castle Produce said the recall covered roughly 2,560 cartons of cantaloupes delivered on or after Feb. 16 to wholesalers in Los Angeles and San Francisco for distribution in the western states. The cantaloupes originated in Costa Rica.
It wasn't clear if the cantaloupes had reached stores.
The recall is the second involving the fruit this month. The Dole Fresh Fruit Co. has recalled about 6,100 cartons of cantaloupes distributed to wholesalers in the eastern United States and Quebec between Feb. 5 and Feb. 8. The cantaloupes also were imported from Costa Rica and tested positive for salmonella. - AP
