The Schwarz’s family is mourning the loss of a 92-year-old local man affected by cantaloupe tainted with listeria. Paul Schwarz’s family said he passed away over the weekend.
He was very active until the cantaloupe recall when he suffered brain trauma from the bacteria. The strain killed more than two dozen people and sickened more than 130 others. Schwarz’s family has filed a lawsuit against Jensen Farms, where the tainted cantaloupe came from.
