A BI-LO store in Glennville, Ga., on March 3 recalled fresh-cut cantaloupe products after a sample at the store tested positive for listeria.
No other BI-LO stores are affected by the recall, according to a news release from the company posted on the Food and Drug Administration's website. No illnesses related to the recall have been reported to date.
The release did not say when the Georgia State Department of Agriculture took the sample or performed the test, but the agency informed BI-LO of the results Feb. 29; the retailer announced the recall March 3.
The sample came from a container of cantaloupe chunks labeled “BI-LO Cantaloupe Chunks Medium” with a sell-by date of Feb. 24. All other products containing fresh-cut cantaloupe with the same sell-by date at that store were also recalled.
The products are:
- Cantaloupe Chunks in medium and large bowls with lids;
- Cantaloupe Halves in foam trays, wrapped in clear plastic;
- Cantaloupe Slices in foam trays, wrapped in clear plastic;
- Mixed Melon Chunks in medium and large bowls with lids;
- Mixed Fruit Bowl in medium and large bowls with lids; and
- Fruit Tray Cantaloupe in plastic trays with lids.
The Glennville store has “sanitized all areas of the store as requested” by the state department of agriculture, according to the release.
