What’s the problem?
March 23, 2011 – This week, Fresh Del Monte Produce announced that it is now recalling approximately 5,000 cartons of cantaloupes due to the potential presence of a form of salmonella bacteria. To date, at least 12 cases of salmonella panama have been linked to the cantaloupe. The products in question were distributed through warehouse clubs in Alaska, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.
Salmonella enterica serotype Panama is an extremely rare form of salmonella bacteria typically transmitted through contaminated food that is capable of causing severe infection. The strain is strongly associated with invasive infection, including meningitis. Until 2006, no case of S. panama meningitis had been reported in the United States, and none has ever been reported in babies under three months of age.
