A North Carolina produce supplier is recalling Athena cantaloupes sold at Food Lion and Reid's stores across South Carolina.
Burch Equipment says the melons may contain listeria monocytogenes.
No confirmed illnesses have been associated with either recall, according to Burch Equipment.
Food Lion and Reid's say they removed all Athena cantaloupes from their shelves.
If you already bought one, the label will reference Burch Farm and read: "Cantaloupe PLU 4319."
The recall affects 463 Food Lion stores, including:
234 North Carolina locations, primarily in the greater Charlotte and High Point-Greensboro-Winston-Salem areas;
129 South Carolina locations, mostly in Augusta, Columbia, Charleston, Greenville and Myrtle Beach;
45 locations in Virginia;
32 locations in Tennessee;
27 locations in Georgia;
Four locations in West Virginia; and,
Three Kentucky locations.
Eleven Reid's locations in South Carolina were also included in the expanded recall. A full list of locations is available here.
Customers who may have bought the recalled product are urged to throw them away and return the sticker to their Food Lion or Reid's store for a full refund.
