Health officials say cantaloupe from Indiana may be to blame.
It's a favorite summer time treat, but now health officials are warning cantaloupe lovers to beware.
Hy-Vee spokesman Ruth Komer says they're spreading the word that their cantaloupes are safe. It's the same story at Dahls. Both grocers buy their melons from a farm in Arizona, not the suspect Indiana farm.
“Why we're hearing so many recalls is because we doing so much better as an industry in getting that word out,” said Komer. “The FDA has not named the farm, but we don't buy any melons from that area of the country, so we’re confident that we don't have any of the melons that are affected.”
Still, health officials say the best advice is to thoroughly wash the dirt off the cantaloupe before you cut it.
