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.

    Still exceptionally rare, considering the tens of thousands of cantaloupes that farm produces. Knee-jerk panic reaction, a common characteristic of the media.
