Meijer recalled whole cantaloupes and some cut fruit containers for possible salmonella, found in a sampling investigation by agriculture authorities.
The grocery and retail supercenter chain, along with Eagle Produce in Aguila, Ariz., recalled the cantaloupe sold from Sept. 26 through Oct. 5 at Meijer stores in in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.
The whole cantaloupes have sticker labels that say Kandy Brand from Eagle Produce. If a cantaloupe from the stores has no sticker, Meijer says people should consider it part of the recall. The grocer based in Grand Rapids, Mich., used cantaloupe from Eagle Produce for store-made cups, bowls and trays of fruit.
The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development conducted the sampling investigation.
No illnesses had been reported at the time of the recall announcement. People who bought the cantaloupe should throw it away, or they may return it to a Meijer store for a refund.
Anyone with recall questions should call Meijer at 800-543-3704, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
These products in clear plastic containers under the Meijer brand label are part of the recall:
