Alabama Department of Agriculture officials say they are monitoring the recall of cantaloupe from a company in California due to possible salmonella contamination. DFI Marketing Inc. recalled the cantaloupe after the company found a contaminated sample at a wholesale produce distribution center. Company officials say no illnesses have been reported and they believe the majority of the recalled product is no longer on store shelves.
The suspected cantaloupes include approximately 28,000 cartons of bulk-packed product. The cantaloupes are packed in 6, 9, 12, 15, or 18 cantaloupes per carton. All cantaloupes are packed in a DFI brand carton stamped “826 CALIFORNIA WESTSIDE.” The cantaloupes were packed on Aug. 26 and may have been distributed from Aug. 27-Sept. 10 primarily to retail customers in 21 states, including Alabama.
