November 17, 2023 — Sofia Produce LLC, also known as “Trufresh,” has recalled certain Malichita® cantaloupes due to a risk of Salmonella.
The recall involves all sizes of fresh cantaloupes, which were packaged in cardboard boxes with the “Malichita” label. They were sold in the U.S. in October 2023.
The cantaloups were distributed in Arizona, California. Maryland, New Jersey, Tennessee, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Texas, Florida through retail produce markets.
The cantaloupes may have an individual PLU sticker, with the word “Malichita” in black letters. The bottom of the sticker is black with the number “4050” and “Product of Mexico.”
