Colorado farm linked to listeria outbreak files for bankruptcy

HOLLY, Colo. -- A Colorado farm linked to a deadly listeria outbreak last fall has filed for bankruptcy protection.

The listeria outbreak was traced to cantaloupes from Jensen Farms. A CDC report blamed unsanitary equipment.

Thirty-two people died as a result including at least one person in Indiana. Nearly 150 people were infected in 28 states.

A farm attorney said the Chapter 11 filing should free up millions in insurance dollars. That money could go to victims.
