Salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon


Walmart stores in IL have removed pre-cut melons linked to this outbreak from their shelves.

The Center for Disease Control says at least 60 people have gotten sick, including six in IL.

Health officials have issued an advisory about a salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melons sold at certain stores in the Midwest.

Health officials advise anyone who has recently purchased a pre-cut melon from the stores to not eat it.

Walmart and Kroger are cooperating with the investigation and have removed all cut melon associated with the outbreak. Other recalls may be coming as the U.S. Drug and Food Administration learns more. As the investigation continues, additional grocery stores may be added.

In Illinois, cases are happening in people between the ages of 23 and 87 across the state.

Most persons infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria. Some people could end up with severe diarrhea that requires a hospital trip.

The CDC says this particular salmonella outbreak could mean more hospitalized people than usual.

The CDC is not recommending that people avoid whole melons. Also make sure you've washed your hands and all utensilsknives and cutting boards, and don't let fresh fruits and vegetables come into contact with raw meat. Fruit should not touch raw meat.
