Cantaloupe Tied to Salmonella Outbreak in 20 States

Ad Feedback

Health officials are racing to stop a deadly salmonella outbreak that has sickened 141 people in 20 states.

Two people in Kentucky died from the food poisoning linked to contaminated cantaloupes believed to have come from a farm in southwestern Indiana.

Most victims of salmonella experience diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after infection.
Health officials say if you have cantaloupe grown in Indiana or if you're not sure where it came from, it's best to throw it out.

Wal-Mart has already pulled cantaloupe grown in that region from its shelves.
