Colorado cantaloupe still being investigated

snipped:

More than two dozen people infected with the outbreak strain of Listeria monocytogenes have been reported in Colorado, Indiana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Montana and Texas, and four have died. Health officials say most consumed whole cantaloupes, most likely marketed from the Rocky Ford region, about 130 miles southeast of Denver.

Jensen Farms in Holly, Colo., said Wednesday it is voluntarily recalling cantaloupe it shipped to Illinois, Wyoming, Tennessee, Utah, Texas, Colorado, Minnesota, Kansas, New Mexico, North Carolina, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Arizona, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania between July 29 and Sept. 10.

Herb and Elaine Stevens didn’t expect to spend their 60th wedding anniversary Sept. 8 in a hospital room, but the Colorado couple had no choice after a meal of contaminated cantaloupe left him seriously ill with a listeria infection linked to a deadly outbreak of food poisoning.

The 84-year old Littleton man has shuttled between nursing homes and medical centers for a month, ever since he was sickened by a plastic-wrapped cut cantaloupe the pair bought at a local King Sooper grocery store. Before the illness, he was able to walk without help, stay alone for a few hours and take care of his dog. Now, says his daughter, it’s not clear whether Stevens will be able to return home.
