FDA Confirms Salmonella In The Melons
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has come out and confirmed that melons from Agropecuaria Montelibano in Honduras have tested positive for salmonella.

In the next few days a Honduran delegation will travel to Washington to obtain the investigating body's decision.
The US reopened its melon market to the Montelibano Company after their exports were suspended more than five months ago due to suspicion of salmonella.
The Agrolíbano company could learn as early as this week whether it will be able to resume exporting its melons to the United States. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will notify it once the results of its analysis of the production system of the fruit in the affected finca are completed. Its exports had been banned due to a suspected outbreak of salmonella.
Experts from the US Food and Drugs Administration will arrive in the country in October.
