A popular gas station chain here in the Midwest recently issued a voluntary recall on several food items. If you were hitting the road to visit family over Thanksgiving and made a stop at a gas station to grab some snacks, you might want to double check the package.

This is actually a part of an expanded recall of fresh fruit by TruFresh.

There has been a nationwide outbreak of salmonella that has been linked to cantaloupe, according to reports. The CDC confirmed that there have been 117 illnesses reported that are linked to said outbreak. In addition, there have been 61 hospitalizations and two deaths reported.

CDC officials are urging consumers not to consume pre-cut cantaloupes if they are unsure if they contain Malichita and Rudy cantaloupes. Those specific types of cantaloupes were the ones recalled due to salmonella.
