First Peanut Butter, Now Cantaloupes


A recall has been issued for thousands of cantaloupes shipped to stores along The East Coast and Canada.

The Dole fresh fruit company recalled thousands of cartons of imported
cantaloupes after the fruit tested positive for Salmonella.

The recall covers roughly 6,000 cartons shipped to wholesalers in the
Eastern United States and Quebec between February 5th and February 8th.

Officials at Dole say there have been no reports of illness.

According to the company, the cantaloupes were grown in Costa Rica.

This comes on the heels of Conagra Foods Inc. issuing a recall of its Peter Pan and Great Value peanut butter after it was linked to an outbreak of salmonella that infected roughly 300 people in 39 states.
