COPENHAGEN — An outbreak of listeria tied to contaminated Danish meat has killed 12 people since September last year, with most of the deaths coming in the past three months, Danish health authorities say.
LOS ANGELES — The death toll from listeria-contaminated cantaloupes has reached 29, making it the deadliest food-borne outbreak in the United States since at least 1985, according to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
WASHINGTON — Pools of water on the floor and old, hard-to-clean equipment at a Colorado farm's cantaloupe-packing facility were probably to blame for the deadliest outbreak of foodborne illness in 25 years, the Food and Drug Administration said.
