DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Another case of listeria in Dallas County has been linked to a national outbreak that was traced back to cantaloupes from Jensen Farms in Colorado.

Dallas County Health officials say a 64-year-old got sick and had to be hospitalized – but the patient has recovered.

The health department is asking people not to eat “Rocky Ford” cantaloupes shipped from Jensen Farms because they could be contaminated with listeria.
