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.

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!

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".

Colorado Cantaloupes Linked To Listeria Deaths

Filed under: FoodHealthRecall!

Cantaloupe

Watch your melons.

Colorado cantaloupes have been linked to 4 deaths and 16 cases of Listeria, a potentially deadly bacterial infection.

The outbreak in Colorado, Texas, Indiana, Nebraska and Oklahoma is believed to have originated from the popular Rocky Ford cantaloupes, which are produced in the Arkansas Valley of Colorado.

Mark Salley, communications director at the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, said:

"We've had [more than 10] cases in Colorado since Aug. 1 that are now linked to the multi-state outbreak. Typically, Colorado sees about 10 cases of Listeria per year, so when we saw so many since Aug. 1, we knew that was significant and decided to look into the multi-state nature of the illness."

Although no official recall from the FDA has been ordered, Jensen Farms has already voluntarily recalled their shipment of Rocky Ford whole cantaloupes to states across the US.

Jensen Farms 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".
