AVA releases 100 tonnes of Australian rockmelons for sale
The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA) on Friday (Mar 16) announced it has released about 100 tonnes of rockmelons from Australia to importers for sale, after verifying that they were not from the affected grower linked to an outbreak of human listeria in Australia.
This follows a recall earlier this month of all rockmelons from Australia as a "precautionary measure", pending clarification on the sources of the rockmelons.
"AVA has worked closely with importers and retailers to verify the source of imported rockmelon consignments from Australia, and all consignments of rockmelons from the affected grower have been recalled and destroyed."
