There’s a recall I wanted to let you know about right now.

According to the FDA, Jensen Farms, of Holly, Colo., voluntarily issued a recall of its cantaloupe Wednesday due to Listeria Contamination that has sickened several people in several states and 2 people have died.

These cantaloupes were sold in several states including Tennessee, Texas, & North Carolina.  Alabama, Georgia, and Florida were NOT listed.

I could not find a listing of the states, but you can see them about halfway through this video on a map (2:3).

Update: Thanks to Jennifer for pointing out the following from the press release – “The whole cantaloupes in question were shipped between July 29th, 2011 and September 10th 2011, and distributed to the following states: IL, WY, TN, UT, TX, CO, MN, KS, NM, NC, MO, NE, OK, AZ, NJ, NY, PA.”

You can read information here about the Cantaloupe Recall and find out how to tell if you have one of the recalled fruits.  According to the article: “The whole cantaloupes have a green and white sticker that reads: Product of USA- Frontera Produce-Colorado Fresh-Rocky Ford-Cantaloupe or a gray, yellow, and green sticker that reads: Jensen Farms-Sweet Rocky Fords.”
