jessica-simpson-has-crazy-cravings.jpg

We all know pregnant women can get some extreme food cravings during their pregnancy. Yesterday, we told you about Beyonce's ketchup obsession.

And now Jessica Simpson is talking about how she has cravings like a "crazy person."

She no longer eats pizza because it "tastes sour," but has she has become fixated on a particular fruit that has to be prepared in a particular way. Jess says:

"I crave cantaloupe like a crazy person. But I put salt all over it, so I don’t know if it’s that healthy. I crave anything salty and sweet. That mixture to me is so good. I can eat a whole cantaloupe in one morning."

Actually, it sounds pretty good to us too. Cantaloupe and salt is waaay better than ketchup.

Death Toll From Cantaloupe Listeria Outbreak Rises!

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadFoodHealth

Cantaloupe infection spreads

Ugh! We thought this mess was over with.

The death toll due to a listeria outbreak from infected cantaloupes has risen to a total of 29!

As of Wednesday, the CDC said 139 persons have been sickened or killed in 28 states since Jensen Farms of Colorado recalled the cantaloupes Sept. 14.

Although the fruit has been taken off of the shelves for weeks, listeria symptoms can take up to two months to surface.

Our hearts go out to anyone affected by the outbreak and send our condolences to families who have lost a loved one.

Listeria Infected Cantaloupe Kills 15!

Filed under: HealthPetsDanger!

Puppy Melon

Don't feed your pets melons! Don't eat any either! At least until the CDC gives the all clear.

There has been a recall on Rocky Ford brand cantaloupes due to a Listeria contamination.

Listeria is a bacteria that can cause flu-like symptoms, such as vomiting, diarrhea, fever and muscle aches.

It can lead to loss of balance, seizures or even death. 15 people have already died!

The infection is on the outside of the melon, which means you could easily transmit it to your pets.

All you have to do is handle a contaminated melon then pet your animal buddy.

Make sure to properly dispose of any possibly contaminated cantaloupes by putting them in a sealed container.

Let's keep our animals safe as well as ourselves, if you don't have your health then you don't have much at all.

Death Toll Rises In Cantaloupe Listeria Outbreak

Filed under: FoodHealthRecall!

check your melons

This is getting serious and we hope it's contained ASAP!

When we last heard, only 4 deaths were linked to a listeria outbreak from Colorado cantaloupes.

Even though the Rocky Ford cantaloupes from Jensen Farms have been recalled, the death toll has continued to rise!

As recently as Friday, a total of 15 people have died as a result of the listeria outbreak, while 84 cases of the illness have been reported in 19 states!

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Jensen Farms cantaloupes are the only melons linked to the outbreak, so check the stickers of any you have in your possession!

Once again, the cantaloupes in question have a green and white sticker that reads "Product of USA- Frontera Produce-Colorado Fresh-Rocky Ford-Cantaloupe" or a gray, yellow, and green sticker that reads "Jensen Farms-Sweet Rocky Fords".
