Fresh Express Foods Corporation, Inc. Oregon Recalls Cube Cut Cantaloupe

Fresh Express Foods Corporation, Inc. Recalls Cube Cut Cantaloupe Due to Possible Health Risk

Miles Stewart

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- March 28, 2008 -- Fresh Express Foods Corporation, Inc. of Medford Oregon is voluntarily recalling cut cubed processed cantaloupe. This product was received from C.H. Robinson, supplied by Agropecuaria Montelibano, a grower in Honduras. This product has the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella and with the knowledge of the Food and Drug Administration we have recalled all of the product.

This organism can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others with weakened immune systems. Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e. infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.

The recalled cut cubed cantaloupe was distributed to 2 local restaurants, 1 hospital and 1 retirement center in Medford and 1 restaurant in Klamath Fall Oregon. One grocery store, Price Less "Deli Department", in Cave Junction Oregon received cut product and all have been contacted under our food safety recall policy.

No illnesses have been reported to date, however individuals should call their healthcare professional if any of these symptoms occur.

Fresh Express Foods Corporation, Inc. has received product from a new source and will continue to supply our customers.
