Another Colorado death from Listeria

DENVER (AP) - The death toll in an outbreak of listeria in cantaloupe has reached 29 after federal health authorities say an eighth person has died in Colorado.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Wednesday that 139 people have been sickened or killed in 28 states.

The tainted Colorado cantaloupes have been off store shelves for weeks now. But the symptoms of listeria can take up to two months to appear.

Deaths also have been reported in Indiana, Louisiana, Maryland, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming.

Jensen Farms in Holly, Colorado recalled the cantaloupes Sept. 14.
