Salmonella fears Cantaluope Recall in Carolinas, Virginia

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Cantaloupes sold at Wal-Mart Supercenter stores in North Carolina and South Carolina, as well as one in Virginia, have been recalled because of concerns that they may be tainted with Salmonella bacteria.

The Salmonella pathogen can cause serious, sometimes fatal Salmonellosis infections in young children; weak or elderly people; and those with weakened immune systems, such as patients undergoing chemotherapy or who have been diagnosed with HIV/AIDS or other immune system compromising diseases.

Salmonella is the most frequently reported cause of food-related outbreaks of stomach illness worldwide. It  can lead to long-term health problems, such as  Reiter’s Syndrome, a difficult-to-treat reactive arthritis characterized by severe joint pain, irritation of the eyes, and painful urination.

The cantaloupe recall is being issued by L&M Companies of Raleigh, North Carolina.  The recall comes after a cantaloupe at a farm from which L&M Companies sources its products tested positive for the Salmonella pathogen. L&M has ceased shipments from this farm, and the grower continues to investigate the cause of the problem. It involves one lot of whole cantaloupes; no illnesses have been reported, to date.

The whole cantaloupes were sold between May 10-15, 2009 in Walmart Supercenter Stores in North Carolina and South Carolina, and in the Walmart Supercenter Store located at 315 Furr Street in South Hill, Virginia. Consumers who have purchased whole cantaloupes from these Walmart stores during this time period should not consume them, and should destroy the product.
