Australia Has Been Warned Not To Eat This ONE FRUIT

Pregnant women, infants and the elderly are being told to not eat rockmelon amid fears of a possible salmonella outbreak.

Food Standards Australia said state and territory authorities were investigating cases of salmonella possibly associated with the fruit following an increase in infections.

“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,” it said in a statement.

“FSANZ will continue to work with the state and territory enforcement agencies and the Federal Department of Health and update its advice to consumers.”

It is not known how long people are expected to avoid the fruit.
