Bad Cantaloupe Kills 13 People; 2 Texans

Wednesday, September 28, 2011 - 8:48pm

People are still getting sick and even dying, after eating bad cantaloupe from a farm in Colorado.

The Centers for Disease Control said tainted cantaloupe is responsible for at least 13 deaths and 70 illnesses. Four people have died in New Mexico, two in Texas.

More people might become sick, because it can take as long as four weeks for someone to show symptoms of listeria.

The fruit has been under a recall for two weeks now, and inspectors believe there's no more bad cantaloupe on store shelves.
