State and territory food enforcement agencies are investigating cases of Salmonella, possibly associated with rockmelon, following an increase in cases in a number of states in Australia.
While we wait for further information, the best advice is that consumers, especially infants, the elderly, pregnant women or people with compromised immune systems, should not consume rockmelon.
FSANZ will continue to work with the state and territory enforcement agencies and the Federal Department of Health and update its advice to consumers.
