Salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melons — CDC

Massive salmonella outbreak linked to backyard chicken flocks

According to WREX, "It's part of a multi-state outbreak where 60 cases from five states (Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio) have been reported, according to the Centers for Disease Control". The cases have been reported in all regions of the state.

Both stores have removed all cut melon associated with this outbreak, MI health officials say.

The includes melons you might buy in a fruit salad.

The agency is conducting an investigation, and preliminary evidence indicated that pre-cut melon supplied by Caito Foods, LLC of Indianapolis, Indiana is a likely source of the multistate outbreak.

The CDC says the outbreak is linked to pre-cut melon.




The CDC says it's linked back to pre-chopped melons sold at Walmart stores and said the fruit salad at Walmart stores should also be tossed.

Walmart settled lawsuits in 2014 with the families of some of the 33 people who died of listeria infections traced to cantaloupes from Colorado that the retailer sold. Symptoms usually hit 12 to 72 hours after eating food contaminated by the salmonella bacteria, and may be severe enough to require hospitalization. Several of those people have been hospitalized as a result.

Walmart and Kroger are cooperating fully with the investigation and have removed all cut melon associated with this outbreak. If you have recently purchased pre-cut melons from Walmart, throw it out.

IDPH suggests that anyone who has pre-cut melon from Walmart should throw it out, and if they have eaten it and experience diarrhea, fever and cramps, they should contact a health care provider. In rare cases, Salmonella infection can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics. The CDC is not recommending people avoid whole melons.
