Listeria Outbreak Originated From Packing Shed
Officials pointed to the cause as pools of water on the floor and dirty equipment at Jensen Farms in Granada, Colo., according to The Associated Press Wednesday.
A Food and Drug Administration assessment said the farm had purchased used equipment that was corroded, dirty and hard to clean. The packing shed floors were constructed in a way that allowed water to pool near equipment and employee walkways.
The equipment was purchased in July, the same month the outbreak began, the AP reported.
