The FDA says two deaths and multiple cases of illness across 20 states, including Texas, are linked to cantaloupes contaminated with salmonella.
Health officials are advising consumers to discard all cantaloupes grown in southwestern Indiana. According to the FDA’s website, a total of 141 people have been infected since July.
Officials warn against consumers trying to wash the harmful bacteria off the fruit. The contamination may be both inside and outside, they said.
