February 24, 2007: Castle Produce Recalls Cantaloupes With Possible Salmonella Contamination

Approximately 2560 cartons of cantaloupes, which may be infected with Salmonella, have been recalled by Castle Produce, a wholesale fruit and vegetable importer. The cantaloupes came from Costa Rica, and have been recalled in California.

FDA testing showed the presence of Salmonella in cantaloupes that were delivered on February 16, 2007, or after that date to wholesalers in Los Angeles and San Francisco. The cantaloupes were meant for distribution in the western portion of the country.

The cartons in question contained 9, 12 or 15 cantaloupes and were made of natural brown cardboard with “Tropifresh de Costa Rica” printed in green and orange lettering on them.

Symptoms of Salmonella food poisoning include diarrhea (sometimes bloody), abdominal cramps, nausea, vomiting, fever, chills, headache, muscle pain, and joint pain.

Anyone who has become ill after consuming these cantaloupes should contact a healthcare professional immediately and inform local and state health officials as well.
