business news in context, analysis with attitude

Consumer Reports is recommending that “consumers avoid buying and eating pre-sliced melon until the end of June and discard any that they've already purchased. That’s because in the past two months, 60 people in the U.S. have gotten sick from a dangerous strain of Salmonella bacteria, likely from eating presliced watermelon, honeydew, or cantaloupe shipped to major retailers across the country.”

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) probe into the outbreak has led to a recall being expanded to 22 states: Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

The good news? I don’t live in any of those states. The bad news? I have a lot of pre-cut melon in my fridge, and I’m a little uneasy about eating it.

I think not.
