The cantaloupe recall that started over a week ago continues and the fruit was distributed to NC stores, according to the FDA. Make sure you don't have any in your home.
According to a WRAL story today, illnesses from the cantaloupes grown by Jensen Farms in Colorado, are expected to rise. The FDA reports that the cantaloupes were shipped to North Carolina. Here is the information from the FDA website on how to identify if your cantaloupe has been recalled:
"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. If the whole cantaloupe is unlabeled, please contact your retail store for sourcing information. Jensen Farms is requesting any consumer that many have one of these cantaloupes to please destroy the products."
