Eric and Ryan Jensen face up to six years in prison and up to $1.5m (£936,856) in fines.

US officials clam they did not "adequately was melons" leading to the death of 33 people and sickened 147

"The Jensens' actions resulted in at least six shipments of contaminated cantaloupe being sent to 28 states, officials said."

my only thing is, yeah the farmers should defiantly clean there produce. but damnit so should the places buying them




The owners of a Colorado cantaloupe farm linked to a 2011 food poisoning outbreak which killed 33 people and sickened 147 have been arrested and charged with selling contaminated food.

If It were women not washing their Melons, I'm sure it would have been a different story...

Mediocre Porn no doubt.

I bet these guys liability claims were through the roof, silly people.

what happened to consumer responsibility ?

washing raw produce is a basic task

We named our band Tainted Cantaloupes after this listeria outbreak in the hopes that there would be another - kind of crazy, right?

Although it took us a LONG time to compete against the "Tainted Cantaloupe Outbreak Kills x People" news articles on Google and YouTube.

My lead singer has interesting tastes and likes cultural references.
