HEALTH ALERT: Cantaloupes Sold In New Jersey Recalled Over Salmonella Concerns

Cantaloupes grown by Sofia Produce and sold in New Jersey under the name Trufresh have been recalled by the Food and Drug Safety Administration (FDA) over concerns they could be tainted with salmonella.

The recall affects produce sold between October 16 and October 23, and consumers are advised to throw away the fruit.

Most affected by salmonella poisoning suffer from fever, diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting, but it can cause more serious harm to young children, the elderly, and those with weak immune systems.

To check if a cantaloupe you bought is affected, check the individual PLU sticker on it, which will have the word “Malichita” written in black script, and the number “4050” on the bottom, along with the words “Product of Mexico/produit du Mexicue.”
