More Deaths Potentially Linked to Listeria Outbreak
DENVER (AP) - More deaths may be linked to a listeria outbreak involving cantaloupe from a Colorado farm.
Oklahoma health officials said Friday that one man died there after being infected. Health officials in Missouri are also reportedly looking into whether listeria linked to the cantaloupe outbreak is to blame for the death of an elderly person in Greene County.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention hasn't confirmed whether those deaths were caused by cantaloupe from Jensen Farms in Holly, Colo.
So far, the CDC has confirmed two deaths, one each in Colorado and New Mexico. Two other deaths in New Mexico are under investigation.
Updated figures are expected later Monday.
