Avoiding Salmonella in Melons

Posted by Hallee on Jun 3, 2011 in Hallee's Galley, kitchen & cooking tips

The more I researched, the more I discovered that you could not only catch salmonella from melons, you could also get E.coli 0157, hepatitis A, Cryptosporidium and Shigella. These food born illnesses can be found in the dirt where melons grow – and since melons grow in the dirt, the rinds get contaminated. When you run a knife through the melon to cut it, it touches the rind then it touches the fruit inside.
