It is very important to note that the investigation has also been closed on watermelon by FDA, CDC and the Indiana Department of Health with NO illnesses from salmonella linked ANY of Chamberlain's watermelons. Some media reports were mentioning watermelons in their stories, causing unnecessary alarm when it had never been proven that watermelons caused any illnesses. It would only be responsible journalism if those same reporters made that distinction now that watermelons have been vindicated and the case has been closed!
