Salmonella cases have doubled again since the start of an outbreak tied to cantaloupe.
The Centers for Disease Control says there are now 230 people nationwide with the illness, with 18 cases reported in Wisconsin. Since the last update from November 30, 113 more people in four states reported new cases. The CDC says many people with salmonella recover without receiving medical treatment, so the real number of cases could be higher. The CDC says it’s best not to eat pre-cut cantaloupes if you don’t know whether the fruit is Malichita or Rudy brand.
