What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

13 deaths linked to listeria bacteria from cantaloupes

Posted on September 28th, 2011 No Comments

Recent reports state that 13 deaths have now been linked to a listeria outbreak from cantaloupe produced at the Jensen melon farm in Colorado.  72 people in 18 states have also reported becoming ill with listeriosis linked to the recalled cantaloupes.

People have become ill from the Colorado cantaloupes in Florida and 17 other states.  The recalled cantaloupes were shipped to stores in 24 states from July 29 to September 10.  The fruit was not shipped to stores in Florida.  However, officials still recommend throwing out any cantaloupes from Colorado, Jensen Farms,  Frontera Produce, or with the “Rocky Ford” brand.

Listeriosis symptoms include muscle aches and fever.  The elderly and people with weakened immune systems are the most likely to be affected by this strain of listeria bacteria.  The median age of people who have become sick from the cantaloupes is 78-years old.
