An Indianapolis-based company has issued a recall for fruit products sold in 16 states including Missouri and Kansas, after being linked to a salmonella outbreak.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said the recall includes cut watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe produced by Caito Foods LLC.
The fruit has been sold under various brands or labels at Kroger, Walmart, Trader Joe’s, Target and Whole Foods.
The recalled Kroger products had fresh-by dates of April 14 and earlier. The recalled Walmart and Trader Joe’s products had fresh-by dates of April 19 and earlier.
Since Caito Foods supplies independent retailers, it’s important to check the brand and label descriptions of the products in stores. According to the FDA People should not consume the products and should throw away any remaining items.
