CDC warns residents in 8 U.S. states of cut-fruit Salmonella outbreak

Recall Alert Throw away pre-cut melon

People should not eat the recalled cut melon or fruit salad products, the CDC said.

Because it is possible that products shipped between April 17 and June 7, 2018, could still be on store shelves, this recall extends to both retailers and consumers.

Caito Foods has seized production and distribution of the melons.

-Stores selling the pre-cut melon (with brand name if applicable): Walmart (Freshness Guaranteed); Whole Foods/Amazon (Whole Foods Market); Costco (Garden Highway); Kroger (generic label distributed by Renaissance Food Group); Walgreens (Delish); Trader Joe's (Trader Joe's); Jay C; Payless; Owen's; and Sprouts (Sprouts Farmers Market).




The CDC said authorities are investigating whether the affected products went to additional stores or states.

Epidemiologic and preliminary traceback evidence indicates that precut melon supplied by Caito Foods is "a likely source of this multistate outbreak", the CDC said in a statement on Friday. They are sold all over the United States, including in Georgia, Kentucky, and North Carolina, in addition to the states that already have confirmed salmonella cases on their hands.

The CDC urges consumers not to eat recalled products, to check the fridge and freezer for the recalled melons and to throw them away or return them to the store for a refund. Overall, 60 people have been infected with the strain - six in IL, 11 in IN, 32 in MI, 10 in Missouri and one in OH - and 31 people have been hospitalized. Caito's website says the Indianapolis Service Center and Fresh Cut facility is located at 3120 N. Post Road. No deaths have been reported so far.

The salmonella outbreak involving pre-cut melon has a high hospitalization rate and concerns pre-cut melon sold by several of the nation's high-volume grocers, but the issue looks relatively confined geographically.
