According to Health Day News: "A farm linked to a recent multi-state salmonella outbreak involving cantaloupes has been named by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

The agency said late Wednesday that Chamberlain Farms Produce Inc., of Owensville, Ind., is a possible source of contamination in the salmonella outbreak, which has infected a total of 178 people in 21 states. Sixty-two people have been hospitalized, and two deaths have been reported in Kentucky." more 

Do you worry about this kind of thing? How do you protect yourself from this kind of illness?
