Hi ladies! Not sure if you heard/read about this, but apparently there is a listeria outbreak in six states linked to canteloupe.

So you might want to stay away from canteloupe right now just to be on the safe side.

Wonder if the problem would be solved by washing the fruit? I never buy cut fruit at the grocery store because I worry they didn't was it before they cut into it.

YIKES!!! Thanks for posting that. Crazy how we just left CO and we were eating tons of canteloupe before leaving. Have been here as well (I just love it so much) but now I think I will stay clear of it for a while to be safe.
