A North Carolina farm is recalling 580 cases of cantaloupes that were sent to New York because they could be contaminated with listeria.
Burch Equipment announced the voluntary recall Saturday.
The farm says the whole Athena cantaloupes were shipped July 15. They have a red label with Burch Farms.
Anyone with one of the cantaloupes should destroy the melon.
The Hannaford Bros. Co. supermarket chain also recalled the same melons.
Hannaford Supermarkets operates 181 stores in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont.
