First case of listeria-related illness in Iowa

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The first illness related to cantaloupe contaminated with listeria has been reported in Iowa.

Health officials say a northwest Iowa woman purchased the cantaloupe at an Iowa store.

The woman was pregnant at the time, and after eating the cantaloupe she became ill, and suffered a miscarriage.

This is the state's first case linked to the multi-state outbreak of listeria stemming from a Colorado farm.
