This is a very serious recall. Unlike many recalls that are done just as a precaution, people are actually dying this time from tainted cantaloupes . So far this fruit is responsible for 141 illnesses, including 31 hospitalizations, and two deaths in 20 states, all from salmonella food poisoning.
Those are just the cases we know about too; it's possible there have been many more cases that just have gone unreported. According to CDC, the source has been tracked down to a farm in southwestern Indiana that distributed across the country. From California to New Jersey and plenty of other states in between, people have been falling ill from its cantaloupe
They're also investigating whether other melons may be affected. Ugh. I just want to eat food without fear. It's especially frustrating when it's healthy foods that are affected in this way. Here you are trying to do the right thing -- feeding your family fresh fruits and veggies -- and then it turns out to be all sorts of wrong.

"For Gordon Crawford:
Gordon made my experience as a first-time home buyer as stress free as it can be. He came highly recommended, and didn't disappoint. I had dealt with a couple of agents before I met Gordon, and both were a nightmare. Moving from Hoboken, Gordon introduced me and my fiancé to the Morris County area. He spent an exceptional amount of time pointing out the local hot spots, pros/cons of neighborhoods, and overall made me feel comfortable narrowing the search. His approach to finding the right home was refreshing, if not tedious, taking us to various listings to see a single detail we may like so he could narrow the search. He often would say, "I know this isn't the right place for you, but what do you think about the yard/kitchen/bedrooms/etc?". When the listing for the home we eventually bought came up, he immediately knew we'd like it.
Gordon walked us through the inspection, negotiation, and closing process. In the rare case when he wasn't able to answer the phone, Gordon's responsiveness was excellent as well. I love the home I'm in, but if I ever need a change, I hope to have Gordon as my agent in the future."
