Cantaloupes to Blame for Salmonella

Double check your fruit salads, everyone. Health authorities have linked the outbreak of salmonella to cantaloupes coming from a farm in Indiana. As of Saturday, the illness has already affected 141 people in 20 different states and killed 2 in Kentucky. The Centers for Disease Control are advising consumers to double-check where their melons are from by looking at the sticker on the fruit. “When in doubt, throw it out,” they advise. Symptoms include cramps, vomiting and diarrhea and if the infection spreads it can be deadly.
