(Newser) – Apple again today was forced to quash rumors about the health of CEO Steve Jobs, refuting a report that the CEO had suffered a “major heart attack,” Bloomberg reports. Shares fell as much as 5.4% following a post on CNN’s citizen-journalist iReport site, but have since rebounded. Jobs’ health has been an issue since a bout with pancreatic cancer in 2004.
