The Food and Drug Administration has named the farm involved in the salmonella outbreak tied to melons.
Tim Chamberlain of Chamberlain Farms in Owensville, Indiana, has voluntarily stopped production at his farm on August 16. The farm has been in operation since 1982 and has not had any other problems besides the recent outbreak that has been blamed for at least two deaths.
According to Chamberlain, the source of the outbreak is unknown and he is waiting on instructions from the government before he decides what to do next.
The outbreak is under investigation by the FDA and Chamberlain Farms may not be the only source.
