The NSW rockmelon grower linked to the fatal listeria outbreak in Australia has been revealed as Rombola Family Farms in the Riverina region.

The NSW Food Authority on Tuesday said it was working with the Nericon business to determine the exact cause of the outbreak which infected 17 elderly people across the country and killed two Victorians and two people from NSW.

“The Food Authority is now working with Rombola Family Farms in an effort to support the business and the wider rockmelon industry as it works to recover from the impact of the outbreak,” it said in a statement on Tuesday.
