Officials say a second Texas resident who became ill from listeria linked to cantaloupes from a Colorado farm has died.
Texas Department of State Health Services spokeswoman Carrie Williams said Tuesday the two deaths are among 14 cases of listeria illnesses in Texas linked to the outbreak.
Both deaths were in a state health region that includes the Dallas-Fort Worth area.
On Monday, Dallas County health officials reported the death of an 89-year-old Dallas County resident ill from listeria linked to the outbreak .
The outbreak has been traced to cantaloupes from Jensen Farms in Colorado, which has recalled the tainted produce.
Jensen Farms said the recalled Rocky Ford-brand cantaloupes were shipped from July 29 through Sept. 10 to more than a dozen states, including Texas.
