Officials confirmed cantaloupes that have been linked to a multiple-state listeria outbreak were sold in some Wisconsin stores.
According to officials, some of the tainted cantaloupe from a Colorado farm were shipped to Wisconsin Aldi stores between Aug. 16 and Sept. 13.
Aldi promptly removed the cantaloupes when the recall was issued, but officials have concern some tainted fruit is still in some customers’ homes.
Officials are trying to determine if any other stores received tainted melons. According to the CDC, 15 people have died and 84 have become sick in 19 different states from the cantaloupe.
Listeria is unique because it not only lives in room-temperatures, but also can survive refrigeration. Experts remind people all produce should be washed before consuming.
