FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -- Irwindale, Calif., July 8, 2005 -- OBIM, a Ready Pac affiliated producer of fresh cut fruit, is announcing a one-time recall of various fresh cut cantaloupe items with Best Before dates of 7/17 and 7/18 due to a small potential risk of salmonella contamination.  These items are sold to retail stores under both the OBIM and Ready Pac brand names and are packaged in sealed, clear plastic containers ranging in size from 6 to 80 oz. They are distributed in the states of Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Alabama, Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee, and Texas. For a complete product listing of the items that may be impacted, please visit

OBIM was informed that one of its cantaloupe suppliers, Martori Farms of Scottsdale, Arizona indicated that a sample of raw cantaloupes tested positive for salmonella on the cantaloupe skin.  While fresh cut and packaged fruit processing includes extensive exterior washing, peeling and cleaning, nevertheless, immediate measures were taken to temporarily stop distribution of the product in question before it was shipped to stores. 

OBIM, FDA, and Martori Farms continue to investigate the cause of the problem and the potential health risk.  As a precaution, Ready Pac is making every effort to inform consumers of the potential risk. There have been no reported illnesses to date.

If any consumer has purchased these products, please return them to the place of purchase for a full refund. Consumers with any questions may contact Ready Pac at 1-800-800-7822.
