Check your fruit my friends. There has recently been a Nationwide outbreak of Salmonella outbreak, and Montana is on the list.

From the FDA Website:

  • Whole fresh cantaloupes with a label on the cantaloupe that says “Malichita” or “Rudy”, “4050”, and “Product of Mexico/produit du Mexique”.
  • Retailers and wholesalers would have received recalled whole melons from Crown Jewels Produce in boxes labeled “Malichita/Z Farms” or from Sofia Produce doing business as TruFresh in boxes labeled “Malichita” or “Rudy”, or from Pacific Trellis in corrugated cartons with certain lot codes.

If you are unsure if you purchased this particular brand, here are some of the sticker images that were on the fruit prior to you cutting and eating it.

What are the signs/symptoms of Salmonella poisonings include:

  • Illness usually occurs within 12 to 72 hours after eating contaminated food and usually lasts four to seven days
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Abdominal cramps

Children younger than five, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems are more likely to have severe infections.

The FDA recommends the three following "rules" to follow:

  • Consumers, restaurants, retailers, and wholesalers should not eat, sell, or serve recalled cantaloupe or recalled products containing cantaloupe.
  • Some consumers freeze cantaloupe for later use. Consumers, restaurants, and retailers should check their freezers and throw away recalled fresh or cut cantaloupe that was frozen for later use.
  • If you cannot tell if your cantaloupe, including pre-cut cantaloupe or products containing pre-cut cantaloupe is part of the recall, do not eat or use it and throw it away.

If you would like more information and all of the states effected you can find that HERE. If you feel like you may have been effected by this outbreak, make sure to contact the local health department for whatever town/city you purchased the cantaloupe from.
