Salmonella outbreak in Midwest linked to pre-cut melons

Posted: Updated:

WSIL -- A warning about a salmonella outbreak that's apparently linked to pre-cut melons that were sold at Walmart and other stores in the Midwest.

Sixty cases have been reported in Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio; thirty one people have been hospitalized.

The Illinois Department of Public Health is urging people not to eat any pre-cut melons or fruit salads purchased from any Walmart stores.

The CDC has also issued a warning about a salmonella risk from pre-cut melon purchased at Costco, Jay C, Kroger, Payless, Owen's, Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Walgreens, Walmart, and Whole Foods/Amazon stores.

Caito Foods, LLC recalled fresh cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, and fresh-cut fruit medley products containing one of these melons produced at the Caito Foods facility in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Most people affected by salmonella develop diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps and recover without treatment.
