FDA reports on farm found with salmonella
The Food and Drug Administration posted a report on its website on an inspector's finding during an August visit to Chamberlain Farm Produce in Owensville.
The inspection report found improperly cleaned equipment and algae growing in standing water beneath conveyor belts in the plant. One of the two salmonella strains was found on cantaloupes that had been processed and boxed. The FDA says the farm is the source of at least some of the outbreak that sickened 270 people in 26 states this summer. Over 100 were hospitalized and three deaths were reported in Kentucky.
