I had no idea a person could get food poisoning from a melon, 15 dead so far.

WASHINGTON — Fifteen people have died and 84 have been sickened after eating cantaloupes infected with listeria from a Colorado farm, US health authorities said Friday.

I believe most problems with melons are that people don't think to wash them before they cut them. Any contamination on the outside goes in with the knife cut.

I see, I have lately started washing the outer of pumpkin and the like before cutting, I am very careful with my chopping boards, unlike some of the households I saw in Poland where their food hygiene ideas are decades behind
