FDA seeks details on Indiana farm tied to salmonella...

OWENSVILLE, Ind. (AP) _ Federal health inspectors are seeking details from a southwestern Indiana farm about how it will fix unsanitary conditions found after a deadly salmonella outbreak was linked to the farm's cantaloupes.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration sent a warning letter to Chamberlain Farms of Owensville requesting specifics on addressing problems found by inspectors, including ``accumulated organic material'' on conveyers and standing water on the floor with apparent algae.
The FDA says last summer's outbreak sickened at least 260 people in 24 states and killed three people in Kentucky. The warning letter dated Dec. 14 gives Chamberlain Farms 15 working days to respond after it was received.
Chamberlain Farms attorney Gary Zhao didn't have an immediate response Thursday, saying he expected to release a statement later in the day.
