Ensure safety when handling melons

-A A +A
By Maryellen Garrison

The recent salmonella outbreak traced to cantaloupes grown in Indiana has many Kentuckians concerned about consuming melons, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to abstain from eating this fresh summer delicacy.  When properly handled, melons can be a safe, satisfying treat.

Here are some tips on how to safely handle melons:

• Buy melons from a local, reputable source. The shorter the distance food has to travel from farm to table, the less of a chance that microorganisms have grown on the produce. Microorganisms need time to multiply.
