Salmonella outbreak traced to cantaloupe
SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) -- Cantaloupes from Indiana are the culprit behind a salmonella outbreak that has killed two people and sickened 141 in 20 states, according to the Center for Disease Control. More than a third of the salmonella Typhimurium cases, including both deaths, occurred in Kentucky, ABC News reported Saturday. The farm in southwest Indiana determined as the source has alerted its distributors and is withdrawing its melons from markets, the CDC said on its website. The farm will also cease distributing its cantaloupes for the season.
