Outbreak Investigation of Salmonella: Cantaloupes

Reason for Recall:

FDA has been notified of additional recalls of pre-cut products made from recalled cantaloupes and has posted a compiled list of these recalls on the FDA website. Since the last update, Stop & Shop initiated a recall of TruFresh cantaloupe that was purchased between the dates of Oct. 23 – Nov. 11, 2023.

As of, December 15, 2023, CDC reported 302 cases from 42 states, with a latest onset date of November 28, 2023. Based on epidemiological data collected by CDC, 107 of 145 cases report exposure to cantaloupe and 56 people specifically report eating pre-cut cantaloupe.

The investigation is ongoing to determine whether additional products are linked to illnesses. FDA will update this advisory should additional consumer safety information become available.
