Safeway is recalling cantaloupes sold under the Llano and Nature's Partner brand names because of a salmonella danger, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency has announced.
The recalled cantaloupes were imported from the United States and distributed to Safeway grocery stores in Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, the Yukon and Northwest Territories from Nov. 7 through Nov. 18.
Consumers who bought whole cantaloupes or in-store fruit salads containing fresh cantaloupe should contact the store to determine whether the product is included in the recall.
No associated illnesses have been reported.
Foods tainted with salmonella may not look or smell spoiled, but the bacteria can cause symptoms such as high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
People with weak immune systems are particularly vulnerable to salmonella poisoning.
For more information, consumers may call the CFIA at 1-800-442-2342.
