    Hi,

    A bunch of canteloupes from western Colorado were recalled on September 10th due to contamination with the listeria bacteria. It is finally hitting all the major news outlets today. (What took them so long?) It only affects the elderly, pregnant women and people with compromised immune systems (that would be us).

    See http://abcnews.go.com/Health/cdc-listeria-outbreak-deadliest-decade/story?id=14622507

    They say it's all been recalled, but don't be so sure--my mom was at a conference last weekend where we've been hearing that 50% of the attendees got sick from this. The incubation period can last up to a month.
    My mom's case hasn't been confirmed yet, but her first symptoms were lightheadedness and grand mal seizures.

    Just a heads up.
