Florida Farm in the Clear

L&M in south Florida is free of salmonella. Investigators found no additional samples after cantaloupe growing on the land led to a three-state recall.
On May 14 a random test by The Food and Drug Administration led North Carolina-based L&M Cos. Inc. recalling all the melons sent to them from Immokalee, Florida. The cantaloupes were being distributed at Walmarts across America.
The company recalled any cantaloupe sold between May 10-15. No illness was reported, but it was done as a precautionary measure. Pass Line Farms received 73 bins full of cantaloupe from the recall.
Lee Anne Oxford, L&M director of marketing said there had been no issues in the past and they are now working with the FDA to clear up any problems.
18 tests were conducted that showed the salmonella no longer exists.
