Dangerous Outbreak

A deadly salmonella outbreak is linked to cantaloupes from southwestern Indiana.

The food and drug administration says the melons are likely responsible for two deaths and nearly 150 cases of illness.

These infections have been reported in 20 states including Alabama and Georgia.

Officials are advising consumers to discard all cantaloupes from southwestern Indiana.

The FDA cautions consumers against trying to wash the harmful bacteria off the cantaloupes, or cut through the outer surface.

The fruit may be contaminated on the inside and outside.
