Cantaloupe and Listeria – I’m bummed!

I am totally bummed that a Colorado farm has had to recall all its Cantaloupe due to Listeria.  Read the FULL ARTICLE here.

Key points:

So far, 72 people in 18 states have become ill after eating the tainted fruit, reporting fever, muscle aches and diarrhea. Thirteen people have died from the infection, but that number could rise with forthcoming test results by state health departments.
 
The bacteria has been traced to cantaloupes grown by Jensen Farms in Colorado, and the fruit has been shipped around the country. 
 
Personally, I’ve been scrubbing cantaloupe with hot soapy water, which seems awful to do to food, but is necessary given the dangers.

Be safe!
