Deadly Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Cantaloupe

Deadly Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Cantaloupe

From onions and apple slices to Bumbo baby seats, August has been quite the month for recalls. The latest product to be removed from stores for safety concerns is cantaloupe.

As the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports, a recent salmonella outbreak has been linked to  cantaloupe grown in southwestern Indiana. More than 140 people in 20 states have been ill after being infected with the salmonella, and two people have died.

Consumers are currently advised not to eat any cantaloupe from southwestern Indiana. You can check cantaloupe for a sticker that identifies its growing area, or ask the store for its source. 

For more information and a list of the 20 states where illnesses have been reported, refer to the CDC website
