The cantaloupe recall covers whole cantaloupes sold between May 10-15, 2009, in Wal-Mart Stores in North Carolina and South Carolina, and in the Wal-Mart located at 315 Furr Street, South Hill, Virginia. Consumers should not eat the recalled cantaloupes.
The cantaloupe recall was initiated after product from an identified farm tested positive for Salmonella.
Numerous Salmonella outbreaks have been linked to cantaloupes in the past. The most recent occurred last year when the CDC confirmed that 51 cases of Salmonella food poisoning were linked to cantaloupes imported from Honduras.
