I need someone with a scientific mind here. I've Googled and can't find the answer. We love cantaloupe. Do we have to give it up due to the recent listeria outbreak? Is it just on the outisde of the fruit and can be washed off, or does it get inside into the flesh and there's nothing you can do to protect yourself? If its just on the outside, what's the best way to clean it? My normal reaction to a food poisoning incident is to avoid that food for a year, I'd like to get over that squeamishness.
