Health authorities in Victoria have been able to confirm a second death linked to the cantaloupe listeria outbreak.

The man was one of six people in Victoria – aged between 60 and 90 – known to have contracted listeria following the outbreak that was linked to cantaloupe or rockmelon grown in New South Wales.

His death takes the national toll to four.

The product has now been cleared from supermarket shelves.

Listeriosis starts with flu-like symptoms such as fever, chills, muscle aches, nausea, and sometimes diarrhoea.
