    I can't believe this story continues! 23 deaths among 116 people infected as of Oct. 11.

    According to the story, It's now the second largest listeria outbreak in U.S. history and case reports have come from 25 states.

    This caught my eye so I thought I would post: At risk are people over age 60, people with diabetes or diseases that weaken the immune system, and people taking drugs that suppress the immune system.

    Have a healthy weekend everyone!
