People are continuing to die from a listeria outbreak linked to tainted cantaloupe that occurred five months ago.
According to MSNBC, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been notified of two more deaths associated with the outbreak. The agency released a final report on December 8, 2011, which reported 30 deaths related to the listeria contamination.
The producers and distributors of the tainted cantaloupe are being sued after federal inspectors found evidence of poor storage practices, poor sanitation, and dirty equipment.
The first illnesses were reported on September 2, 2011 and a recall soon followed.
