Cantaloupe Safety

Posted by Boston Organics on Oct 11, 2011 10:59:49 AM

To our wonderful customers,

In light of the recent cantaloupe listeria outbreaks across the country, we'd like to take a moment to let you all know where our cantaloupes are coming from.

The cantaloupes we've been distributing recently are certified organic out of California and are not a part of the recent recall. The cantaloupe included in the recall are conventional (not organic) from Jensen Farms in Colorado.

The cantaloupes we’ve been distributing were organically grown in California from the following sources - Empresas Del Bosque, Inc. or Turlock Fruit Company.

Because the food distribution chain is complex, if you have purchased any pre-cut fruit salads or whole cantaloupes in recent weeks, please be sure to contact those stores to find out their source. Food outbreaks are very serious, and we appreciate and share your concern.

As always, please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions!
