Consumer Kashrut Alerts

The following health alert is from the FDA on October 21, 2010. -

Del Monte Fresh Produce N.A., Inc ("Del Monte Fresh") announced today the voluntary recall of certain cantaloupes grown in and shipped from AZ. The affected product was distributed to limited customers in and around Detroit, MI and is being recalled because these cantaloupes have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella. Approximately eighty one (81) cartons of cantaloupes, each containing fifteen (15) cantaloupes per carton, were distributed to wholesalers in Detroit who in turn sell to other wholesalers and or to retail and foodservice outlets beginning on October 11, 2010. The cantaloupes have a light brown color skin on the exterior; with orange flesh. Each cantaloupe has a Del Monteฎ sticker with the words "Cantaloupe USA". The cantaloupes were distributed for sale in bulk in cardboard cartons. The recalled cartons of cantaloupes are dark brown cardboard with the "Del Monte" logo in red lettering and "cantaloupes" in yellow lettering on a green background. The cantaloupes have the lot codes W-11-147-43-size 15 or W-11-14-19 size 15. The cantaloupe recall is being implemented as a result of a random test directed by the USDA and carried out by the Michigan Department of Agriculture. Although no illnesses have been reported, Del Monte Fresh voluntarily decided to recall the potentially affected lot. Consumers who believe that they are in possession of uneaten cantaloupe affected by this recall may contact Del Monte Fresh at any time by calling 1-800-659-6500 or email Del Monte Fresh at Contact-US-Executive-Office@freshdelmonte.com.
