Dallas County Resident's Death Linked to Listeria

DALLAS (AP) - An 89-year-old Dallas County resident who became
ill from listeria linked to cantaloupes from a Colorado farm has died.

Dallas County Health and Human Services said Monday the resident
had been hospitalized but gave no other details. The person wasn't
identified.

According to the latest information from the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention, which is from last week, eight deaths have
been reported nationwide from the outbreak. That did not include a
death in Texas.

The outbreak has been traced to cantaloupes from Jensen Farms in
Holly, Colo., which recalled the tainted produce earlier this month. Jensen Farms said the recalled Rocky Ford-brand cantaloupes were shipped from July 29 through Sept. 10 to more than a dozen states, including Texas.
