It seems like we were talking just about a Colorado cantaloupe recall, and unfortunately, you might need to steer clear of this melon once again. The North Carolina company Burch Farms has recalled tens of thousands of cantaloupes and honeydew melons due to possible food poisoning.
The FDA reported finding the bacteria Listeria monocytogenes (L. mono) on a honeydew melon grown and packed by Burch Farms. Although no one has confirmed getting sick, this bacteria can cause listeriosis with symptoms that include fever, muscle aches, diarrhea, and other tummy issues. Although older adults, pregnant women, and babies are most at risk, it can also (although rarely) affect other people. Illness can show up anywhere from a few days to more than two months after eating contaminated food.
See which states are affected after the break!
