What Fruit Is Recalled In Michigan?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced that there is a salmonella outbreak that is linked to cantaloupes.

"This outbreak may not be limited to the states with known illnesses, and the true number of sick people is likely much higher than the number reported. This is because many people recover without medical care and are not tested for Salmonella."


As of now, the CDC says that only one person has gotten sick from the salmonella in this recall.
