One thing is certain — the tornado carnage that Moore, Oklahoma witnessed Monday has resulted in a gruesome number of injuries and deaths, more than any town should ever see.

While there seemed to be some conflict in the official death toll Tuesday morning, New York Times reports that Oklahoma City medical examiner spokeswoman Amy Elliot said at least 91 had died already.

Meanwhile, CNN reports that while the official death toll stands at 51, they have confirmed that 91 is the estimated number with a coroner's office official stating that some 40 bodies 'have yet to be processed by medical examiners - roughly half of them children.'

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.

More Deaths Resulting From Listeria Outbreak Linked To Cantaloupes

Filed under: Sad SadFoodRecall!

Listeria melons

Ugh! More bad news on the listeria infected cantaloupe front.

3 more people have lost their lives after eating contaminated Rocky Ford brand cantaloupes from Jensen Farms of Granada, Colorado. The total death toll as a result is now 18 people, with the CDC reporting at least 100 cases of listeria in 20 states.

Unfortunately, this listeria outbreak is the deadliest food-borne illness outbreak in the United States since 1998.

Do yourself a favor and toss any cantaloupes from Jensen Farms if you have not done so already.

If you don't see a sticker displaying where the the fruit came from, DO NOT take the chance and throw it out!

It's better to be safe than sorry!

Awful! So sad!

If you've been paying attention to the news, we're sure you're aware of the devastating floods that have kept Thailand sleeping with one eye open for the past few months.

Now the death toll has risen to 237 as of Wednesday. And those are just the ones reported.

It's predicted that more rain will fall on the nation within the week as Typhoon Nalgae makes her b*tchy appearance.

Our thoughts go out to everyone who's lost a loved one.

Hurricane Irene Death Toll Reaches 24

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad Sad

hurricane irene death toll reaches 24

So tragic and upsetting.

We've just learned that Hurricane Irene's death toll has risen to 24 people.

We're very disturbed by that number, given the fact that there were 14 reported deaths just yesterday.

It seems like we're past the worst of it, but we truly hope that nobody else loses their life due to this terrible hurricane.

We continue to send our thoughts and prayers out to everyone on the east coast.
