A listeria outbreak in cantaloupe

Posted: Updated:

This time, cantaloupe is the culprit. The government says if you have one and don't know where it came from, throw it out. In what is called the deadliest outbreak in a decade, and more than a dozen people have died so far after eating cantaloupe from a Colorado farm tainted with Listeria.  That's a bacteria that infects the soil where fruits and vegetables grow.  So, if you have a cantaloupe that is stamped from Colorado or Jensen farms, throw it away.
