MADISON, WI (WSAU) State officials say two cases of salmonella in Wisconsin can be linked to a multi-state outbreak traced to cantaloupe from southwestern Indiana. Consumers are being warned not to eat an cantaloupe from that region. You can usually tell where melons originate by a listing on a sticker on the fruit.Otherwise, the store where it is bought can provide the information.
Salmonella can cause serious and possibly fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people and others whose immune systems are compromised. Anyone suffering the symptoms of diarrhea, fever and abdominal pain should contact their doctor or nurse practitioner.
