  • Staff Report 

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a recall for cucumbers distributed by Fresh Start Produce Sales Inc. in Delray, Florida, due to potential salmonella contamination. These cucumbers were sold in 14 states, including New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, between May 17 and May 24.


The recall follows a notification from the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture, which found salmonella in one of the company’s products. The FDA is currently testing the cucumbers to see if there are connections to other recent salmonella outbreaks in the U.S., including in cream cheese, poultry, tea, and seasonings.

The recalled cucumbers are dark green, measuring 1.5 – 2.0 inches in diameter and 5-9 inches in length. Mini cucumbers and English cucumbers are not included in the recall. The FDA advises consumers to check with local grocery stores to determine if the affected products were sold.
