Colorado Cantaloupe Growers Ask State For Help With Public’s Trust

DENVER (CBS4) – Colorado cantaloupe growers are pleading with the state to help them restore the public’s trust in the melons.

Growers say the recent listeria outbreak has people afraid to eat cantaloupes grown in the Rocky Ford region.

Farmers want the state’s head of agriculture to create a commission dedicated to improving consumer confidence. They want people to know the listeria was linked to just one packing plant and not the area that produces cantaloupes.
