Aldi Part of Nationwide Cantaloupe Recall Over Possible Salmonella Contamination

In November of 2023, the FDA launched an investigation into the presence of Salmonella in cantaloupes. First initiated in mid-November, the recall has expanded in late November. At the time of this post, the CDC has reported 99 cases of Salmonella in 32 states, including 45 hospitalizations and 2 deaths. The FDA is also reporting cases in Canada.

Several cantaloupe suppliers, including Crown Jewels Produce, Sofia Produce, and CF Dallas are all involved in the recall. The FDA reports that the affected supply was sold at retail stores in AZ, CA, MD, NJ, TN, IL, IN, KY, MI, OH, OK, WI, TX, FL, and Canada. However, the FDA cautions that this list may not include all states, since cantaloupes could have reached consumers through further retail distribution. A number of grocers are affected, including Walmart.

Aldi, for its part, has said that the recall includes cantaloupe, cut cantaloupe, and pineapple spears in clamshell packaging sold in its stores with best-by dates between October 27 and October 31.

Trader Joe’s has not made any recall announcements.
