WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The FDA is warning the cantaloupe industry after two major outbreaks in two years.
Contaminated cantaloupe caused 36 deaths and sickened more than 400 people nationwide. Now, a Central Florida teen is in Washington advocating for safer food.
"It is a miracle I am here today," says Dana Dziadul who nearly died after eating cantaloupe tainted with salmonella when she was 3 years old.
Now at 15, she's an advocate testifying in Washington for food safety.
"I want to make sure people don't get sick like I did."
