According to the Denver Post, a man from Sheridan, Wyoming is suing the Sharidan Walmart for the wrongful-death of his wife. In a Federal court lawsuit, Frederick M. Lollar claims that his wife, Jaqueline Lollar, died on September 19, 2011 after eating part of a contaminated cantaloupe that was purchased at Walmart on September 1, 2011. The FDA acknowledged that the cantaloupe – which originated from a batch grown in Colorado – was contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes, a type of bacteria. Walmart removed the cantaloupes but did not publicly warn customers or make a statement to warn consumers about that contamination and the potential hazardous effects to their health if consumed.
