Cantaloupes Recalled For Possible Listeria

Posted: Updated:


GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WLNS) - A Western Michigan supplier is recalling about 5,400 cantaloupes distributed to independent grocers because of possible listeria bacteria contamination.



Heeren Brothers Produce in Grand Rapids said Tuesday it distributed the cantaloupes to small, independent Michigan grocers from July 23rd through 26th. It says the cantaloupes may be contaminated with listeria.

Listeria can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, the elderly and others with weak immune systems. Symptoms include high fever, severe headache, stiffness, nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
