Discount grocer Aldi – which has more than five dozen locations across New Jersey – is voluntarily recalling cantaloupe because the products may contain salmonella.
The potentially contaminated items in New Jersey include all sizes of fresh cantaloupe sold between Oct. 10 and Nov. 3 with the “Malichita” or “Rudy” label, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
New Jersey was not initially included in the recall issued by Aldi earlier this month; however, the growing number of people sickened by the bacteria prompted U.S. health officials to expand the scope of the investigation last week to include additional fresh fruit products and locations.
As of Nov. 27, the outbreak has spread to 32 states, causing at least 99 infections and two deaths, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
