BAHRAIN has temporarily banned the import of rock melons from Australia after three Australians reportedly died after consuming the fruit contaminated with listeria. However, there has been no recall of the fruit from the market as samples are being tested, according to Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning Ministry’s Agriculture and Marine Department consultant Dr Mohammed Fouda yesterday.
