November 22, 2023

The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) is collaborating with various health partners to investigate a Salmonella outbreak linked to Malichita brand cantaloupes. As of November 22, there have been 26 laboratory-confirmed cases of Salmonella Soahanina and Sundsvall illness linked to this outbreak in the following provinces: British Columbia (7), Ontario (7), Quebec (8), Prince Edward Island (2) and Newfoundland and Labrador (2). 6 individuals have been hospitalized and no deaths have been reported. Individuals became sick between mid-October and early-November 2023. Additional Salmonella infections are under investigation and more illnesses associated with this outbreak may be confirmed.

Investigations reveal that the consumption of Malichita brand cantaloupe is the likely culprit behind the outbreak. This fact derived from the reports of some affected individuals who admitted to having eaten the cantaloupe before getting sick. Multiple warnings for food recalls were issued, particularly for Malichita brand cantaloupes sold from October 11 to November 14, 2023. The warnings extended to include other fruits processed in proximity to the Malichita brand cantaloupe, such as honeydew, pineapple, watermelon, and various fruit trays.

The U.S. CDC is also investigating an outbreak of Salmonella Sundsvall illnesses linked to cantaloupes that is the same genetic strain as illnesses reported in this outbreak.

Do not consume, serve, use, sell, or distribute Malichita brand cantaloupe, any products made with Malichita brand cantaloupe, or any recalled produce. If you are unable to verify the brand of cantaloupe, or if your produce is part of the CFIA recalls, it is advisable to not consume it.

In case you are experiencing Salmonella symptoms such as diarrhea, abdominal cramps, and fever, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.
