Two more people in the United States have died from eating listeria-tainted cantaloupes, bringing the death toll to 15 in the country's deadliest foodborne outbreak in more than a decade, health officials said on Friday.

The outbreak has focused new attention on listeria as a possible contaminant of fresh produce. On Friday, California-based True Leaf Farms recalled almost 15,000 bags of chopped romaine lettuce that may be contaminated with listeria, although no illnesses have been reported and officials said the incident had no direct link to the deadly cantaloupe-related outbreak.
