CDC: Pre-cut melon likely cause of Salmonella outbreak

CDC: Pre-cut melon likely cause of Salmonella outbreak

"If you have recently eaten pre-cut melon from a Walmart store and experience diarrhea, fever, and cramps, contact your health care provider".

Pre-cut melons have been removed from the shelves in both store chains, while whole melons do not appear to be affected.

The outbreak has been connected to pre-cut melon purchased at any Illinois Walmart.

Late Friday, Caito Foods of Indianapolis announced it was voluntarily recalling watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe and mixed fruit products produced at the Indianapolis facility as they had the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.

On Thursday, the CDC and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration informed The Kroger Co. that multiple illnesses have been reported in connection with the outbreak, and a third-party supplier is cooperating with the investigation. If you are unsure of where you bought the pre-cut melon, the CDC says that it should be thrown away.

The notice from the CDC does not apply to whole melons or other types of pre-cut fruit. Some people could end up with severe diarrhea that requires a hospital trip.

Pre-cut melon sold at Walmart stores in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, or Ohio. Most often, however, people recover from a salmonella infection without medical attention.

Of the 124 cases, 21 people have been hospitalized but no deaths have been reported.

Elderly people, infants and anyone with weak immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.

Dozens of people are sick across the Midwest due to a salmonella outbreak in certain pre-chopped melons.
