t least 13 deaths and 72 illnesses have been linked to a listeria outbreak from Colorado cantaloupes, health officials say, in the deadliest food outbreak in more than a decade.

Three other deaths may also be related to the tainted fruit, which are linked to a farm in Holly and have been recalled.

Bacteria were also found on equipment and produce at the farm's packing site.

The listeria probably came from the field workers that used the bathroom in the fields.  This reminds me of the incident back in 2006 at some spinach farm in California.

Thanks for the article link - it was interesting news.
