Rockmelons at the centre of a salmonella outbreak in Australia have not been exported to New Zealand, the Ministry for Primary Industries says.
Earlier in the week, Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) issued a warning to people to avoid eating rockmelon because of a spike in salmonella cases associated with the fruit.
Eighty cases of salmonella linked to eating rockemelons had been reported in Australia.
FSANZ is coordinating a trade recall of whole rockmelons from a grower in the Northern Territory.
In New Zealand, the Ministry for Primary Industries said none of the recalled fruit had been imported to New Zealand.
Rockmelons are grown in all Australian states and territories, except Tasmania and the Australian Capital Territory.
Rockmelons have been the subject of salmonella outbreaks in the past, with health authorities investigating contaminated fruit in 2006.
