A recall has recently been issued by the North Carolina-based Burch Equipment on whole Athena cantaloupes. 580 cases, which were distributed throughout the Northeastern part of the country, are affected by the recall. The recall was necessitated once a random sample turned up a contamination of the Listeria monocytogenes organism. Customers should destroy the cantaloupes, which have a red sticker reading Burch Farms. 4319 is the PLU number.
