Third NW MO Cantaloupe

It's happened again, another case of Listeria tainted cantaloupe coming from northwest Missouri.

State officials aren't identifying which community, but this makes the third Listeria case in the northwest region out of 5 confirmed cases in the state. All 5 victims have been hospitalized, one 94 year old died although it's questionable if that person's death was because of the Listeria infection. Health officials are again warning to check your whole cantaloupes, the recalled ones have green and white stickers on them that read "Colorado Fresh Rocky Ford" or a gray, yellow, and green sticker that reads "Jensen Farms Sweet Rocky Fords". They say if your whole cantaloupe is unlabeled you should contact your store for sourcing information.
