January death may be linked to 2011 Listeria-tainted cantaloupe

from Food Safety News

Just as Colorado cantaloupes return to store shelves for the new growing season, the foodborne pathogen tracking network known as PulseNet may have connected the 2011 cantaloupe outbreak to a Listeriosis death in Montana. The connection was made when PulseNet discovered a clinical sample of Listeria from a 75-year-old Bozeman, Mont., man who died in January was indistinguishable from a rare strain of Listeria found on a cantaloupe from an outbreak victim's home.
