Update: Eight Cases of Salmonella Reported in Fayette County

At least one of the cases may be tied to the tainted cantaloupe in Indiana.
         The Lexington-Fayette Health Department says there have been eight confirmed cases of Salmonella in Fayette County and some could be tied to the tainted cantaloupe out of Indiana.

     The health department says that of the eight cases, at least two have a similar pattern to
salmonella from the strain out of Indiana.

     Health officials say one is linked directly back to the Indiana farm. 

     States have seen cases linked to this specific outbreak.

     The health department says the tainted cantaloupe has been recalled, but says there are some signs you can look for if you're worried about any of the fruit you bought.

     They say if in doubt, just throw the cantaloupe out. They also say there should be no bruises, no cuts and make sure the outside is firm and that there is no way anything can penetrate the fruit.
