As a cantaloupe listeria lawyer, I am keeping up with the latest in this terrible outbreak. The tainted cantaloupe in question came from Jensen Farm's in Holly, Colorado. Jensen’s Farms has voluntarily recalled more than 300,000 cases of cantaloupe in seventeen states this week because of the potential listeria contamination. These states include Illinois, Wyoming, Tennessee, Utah, Texas, Colorado, Minnesota, Kansas, New Mexico, North Carolina, Missouri, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Arizona, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.
The United States Center for Disease Control ("CDC") stated that the 22 people infected in this cantaloupe outbreak are in seven states: Texas, Colorado, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Indiana, Nebraska, and New Mexico.
