A Minnesota company is voluntarily recalling packaged fruit products containing cantaloupes because of a possible health risk.
The Food and Drug Administration says salmonella found at a cantaloupe farm in southwestern Indiana matches the “DNA fingerprint” of the salmonella responsible for a deadly outbreak that sickened people in 21 states.
Health officials are advising consumers to avoid eating cantaloupe grown in southwestern Indiana after a multi-state salmonella outbreak led to at least three cases in Minnesota.
As many as 14 people have died from possible listeria illnesses traced to Colorado cantaloupes, health officials say — a death toll that would make the food outbreak the deadliest in more than a decade.
Four people have died after eating contaminated cantaloupe.
