Vendors Battling Salmonella Scare
CHARLOTTE, N.C.--Charlotte's Regional Farmers Market are showing off their salmonella-free melons.
The Center for Disease Control and Prevention says contaminated cantaloupes grown in southwestern Indiana are to blame for a recent salmonella outbreak.
Three People in North Carolina and three in South Carolina were sick. Vendors at the farmers market say their fruits and veggies have to be Carolina grown. However, shoppers are clearly still nervous.
If you are not sure about a cantaloupe, experts say you should check the sticker. The sticker should say where it was grown and shipped from.
If there is no sticker, you should look out for a sour smell when you cut it.
