Public service announcement: Listeria

Okay, so we've been mostly avoiding un-reheated deli meat but the latest outbreak, stateside at least, is in cantelope grown in Colorado. A couple people have died and lots got sick according to the morning news. Their recomendations are to wash well. Me? I hate cantelope so its not an issue for me.

Yeah, I remember hearing about that. Like 2-3 weeks ago. And fruit is supposed to be good for ya. Yeah, I think I will stick with my overly processed stuff. LOL

Anyone from my area will tell you Milwaukee area news is usually a couple weeks behind if it doesn't involve Brewers, Packers, or the cheese head.

I'm allergic to most melons, watermelon is the only thing I can have more than just a couple bites of, so not much of an issue here. That and I WILL NOT buy that stuff in the store. We have to many farmers markets and local sellers of that stuff that it's WAY cheaper to buy it that way. Smile If I can avoid buying produce in the store I do.

Luckily I hate cantelope, but we've had 2 deaths in the DFW area, so I'm telling my parents they are on a cantelope time out!

well I'm totally bummed cause I have been living off fruit this whole pregnancy. I always grab a load of fruit before I leave the hospital in the morning and keeps pears and apples in the frig. I am going to lay off cantelope for the rest of the growing season, which sucks, cause it's been very sweet this year.
