Raley’s, Bel Air, Nob Hill Foods and Food Source have announced a voluntary recall of Fresh Del Monte Produce Inc., cantaloupes. The cantaloupes have possibly been contaminated with Salmonella. The recall included 1,120 cartons of the cantaloupes that were sold between October 5 and October 16, 2009.
Consumption of food contaminated with Salmonella can cause salmonellosis, one of the most common bacterial foodborne illnesses. Salmonella infections can be life-threatening, especially to those with weak immune systems, such as infants, the elderly and persons with HIV infection or undergoing chemotherapy. The most common symptoms of salmonellosis are diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever within eight to 72 hours. Additional symptoms may include chills, headache, nausea and vomiting that can last up to seven days.
