Six Michigan salmonella cases appear linked to Indiana cantaloupe case

Michigan officials say six salmonella cases in the state are possibly linked to an ongoing investigation involving cantaloupe consumption.

The cases reported since early July include one in Branch County, two in Calhoun County, one in Kalamazoo County and two in Wayne County.
