Owensville, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The same Indiana farm linked to a salmonella outbreak last month is now recalling its watermelons and falling on some hard times.
Chamberlain Farms in Owensville is making the voluntary watermelon recall because of a separate strand of salmonella from those found in the cantaloupes.
With the Chamberlain family expected to struggle through the salmonella investigation, one of their neighbors is hoping she can give them a boost.
She's selling signs reading "we support Chamberlain Farms." A small gesture... But one she hopes will boost the family's morale.
Sue Ising says, “They didn't do this on purpose, and I feel like they deserve compassion. I want them to know how much we appreciate them, in the winter time, they clean out my driveway. I heard a tractor, I look out, my driveway is cleaned, he saw that our truck was stuck and he pulled us out and they're giving people and other people need to understand that."
Ising also said they are a hard working family and she hopes the community will pull together and show them love.
At this time no one has gotten sick from the watermelons that they did sell this summer.
