Ontario consumers warned against Dole cantaloupes

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency is warning people not to eat Dole Brand cantaloupes because they could be contaminated with salmonella.

The fruit is from Costa Rica and was sold in various stores in Ontario over the past 10 days, including:

* Elias Fresh Express, Windsor.
* A&P, London.
* Dutton Foodland, Dutton.
* Loblaws, London.
* Lucan Foodland, Lucan.
* Moore's Foodland, Clinton.
* Seaforth Foodland, Seaforth.
* Stonetown Foodland, St. Marys.
* ValuMart, London.

The warning includes whole cantaloupes and in-store products containing pieces of fresh cantaloupe.

There have been no illnesses reported from people eating the cantaloupe.

Eating food contaminated with salmonella may cause high fever, severe headache, vomiting, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea, and can be serious or even deadly for the elderly or people with weakened immune systems.

Last week, the CFIA warned people in Quebec not to eat Dole cantaloupes.
