Salmonella traced in Southwestern Indiana cantaloupes

INDIANA -- State and federal health officials are telling consumers to discard all cantaloupes from Southwestern Indiana.

Recent tests found evidence of the same strain of salmonella bacteria associated with a multi state outbreak.

The Food and Drug Administration said two deaths and multiple cases of illness across 20 states have been linked to contaminated cantaloupes.

The Indiana farm has agreed to stop distributing cantaloupes for the rest of the growing season.
