6 August - USA: Heeren Brothers Produce is recalling 5,400 cantaloupes because of a possible risk of listeria contamination.
Heeren Brothers Produce has not received any case of reported illnesses related to date and the recall does not affect other Heeren Brothers Produce products.
The produce, which was distributed to small, independent grocers in Michigan 23-26 July should be discarded and not consumed. The cantaloupes are Athena Cantaloupes, but have no stickers or other markings that identify them as such.
Heeren Brothers Produce became aware of this issue after the Food & Drug Administration conducted a routine sampling and found the cantaloupes contained the bacteria.
After receiving notice from the FDA, Heeren Brothers Produce alerted retailers and requested that they remove the produce from their shelves and has contacted the supplier of the cantaloupes with the source of the potential issue still under investigation.
