Colorado wildfires are becoming increasingly costly and destructive. Since 2002, wildfires have destroyed roughly 2,000 structures according to federal fire data. In response to this growing risk, Colorado State University is launching a new center focused on creating wildfire management solutions “for the next generation.”
Cantaloupes were the culprit in a 2011 listeria outbreak that killed more than 30 people.
The Colorado farmers who distributed cantaloupes infected with listeria two years ago pleaded guilty in federal court to criminal charges Tuesday. Jensen Farms, located outside Holly, Colo., was the source of the outbreak that killed 33 people nationwide.
