    If people aren’t sure what brand of cantaloupe they bought, Health Canada says they should throw it out as a precaution.  

    Other pre-cut fruit (such as in a fruit plate or fruit salad) may have been contaminated if they were prepared with these cantaloupes. As a precaution, please consider throwing out pre-cut fruits bought between October 10 and November 24, 2023.
