Salmonella outbreak afflicts 60 people

Salmonella outbreak afflicts 60 people

No deaths have been reported and 31 people have been hospitalized. A CDC investigation indicates pre-cut melons, including fruit salads, are a likely source of the outbreak.

Those who reported illness said they had eaten pre-cut cantaloupe, watermelon, honeydew melon, or a fruit salad mix with melon. They were sold in clear plastic containers at stores including Costco, Jay C, Kroger, Payless, Owen's, Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Walgreens, Walmart, and Whole Foods.

Only pre-cut melon is affected by the recall. Kroger Co. said customers who purchased the melon from the company's IN and MI store locations should not consume them and return them to a store for a full refund or replacement.

Dozens of people are sick across the Midwest due to a salmonella outbreak in certain pre-chopped melons. "CDC's advice to consumers may expand to include other stores where contaminated pre-cut melon was sold", according to an alert from the CDC.

If you bought pre-cut melon at a Walmart in Missouri, throw it away. Now.

It's not just Walmart pre-cut melon. Whole melons are not included.

Last year, the CDC reported the largest number of salmonella illnesses linked to backyard flocks after the lifestyle trend emerged across the country. However, for some, the diarrhea may be so severe that hospitalization is necessary. Most often, however, people recover from a salmonella infection without medical attention.
