Cantaloupe Recall - many deaths already :(

Jensen Farms Recall
Jensen Farms voluntarily recalled its whole cantaloupes on Sept. 14 in response to the multi-state outbreak of listeriosis. Cantaloupes from other farms have not been linked to this outbreak.
The recalled cantaloupes were shipped from July 29 through September 10, 2011 to the following states: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Virginia, and Wyoming. There is no indication of foreign distribution at this time.
For more information on the epidemiologic investigation, please refer to CDC’s Investigation on the Multi-State Listeriosis Outbreak.
**Some symptoms don't show up til a month after. A person with listeriosis usually has fever and muscle aches. Persons who think they might have become ill should consult their doctor. 
SCARY! :(

These cantaloupes went to a lot of different states and from July to September. I did not realize how many people this could have affected. I hope in the future they will learn how to keep our produce safer.
