A salmonella outbreak tied to tainted cantaloupe has now killed eight people — three in the U.S. and five in Canada, health officials reported Thursday.

Dozens more illnesses were reported by both countries. In the U.S., at least 230 people have been ill in 38 states and 96 have been hospitalized since mid-November, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The tainted cantaloupe was also shipped to Canada, where 129 cases have been reported, including 44 hospitalizations, health officials reported.

I rarely eat pre-cut, packaged fruit like this situation.  What a way to die.

Don't eat cantaloupe much but do like to squeeze a set of them every now and then

Don't squeeze the Charmin unless you can deal with a harmin.

Hi Hank

Generally I only squeeze melons that are emotionally or psyhcologically stable enough to understand the level of appreciation of the ripeness of the fruit.
