Officials advise that any recalled products should be returned or thrown out, and if a cantaloupe does not have a sticker on it, people are encouraged to check with the store that sold it. Additionally, any surfaces that may have come in contact with these items should be washed with hot, soapy water or a dishwasher.

Symptoms of salmonella include diarrhea, fever, vomiting and dehydration.
