Cantaloupe Recall

Apparently, there has been a cantaloupe recall, as this fruit is contaminated with Salmonella.  

Please note that the link covers ALL Salmonella infections, although, obviously, the one of concern, is nontyphoidal.  This usually presents as a diarrheal illness, often with fever and general malaise.  In the young and elderly, it can become much more serious.  Please see your physician, if you recently consumed the product and are experiencing any of these symptoms.  

The cantaloupe was sold in the U.S., as well as in Canada.  Please make sure to check what you are buying.
