FDA Recalls Whole, Cut Cantaloupe


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration expanded its recall of cantaloupe melon due to a risk of salmonella contamination after two people died, dozens were hospitalized and around a hundred became ill.

Recalled whole cantaloupe from the following brands:

Whole fresh cantaloupes with a label on the cantaloupe that says “Malichita” or “Rudy”, “4050”, and “Product of Mexico/produit du Mexique”

Recalled cantaloupe was sold at retail stores in AZ, CA, MD, NJ, TN, IL, IN, KY, MI, OH, OK, WI, TX, FL, and Canada. This list may not include all states as the cantaloupes could have reached consumers through further retail distribution.

Retailers and wholesalers would have received recalled whole melons from Crown Jewels Produce in boxes labeled “Malachita/Z Farms” or from Sofia Produce doing business as TruFresh in boxes labeled “Malichita” or “Rudy.”
