Pre-cut melon likely cause of Salmonella outbreak — CDC

Cropped

Of those, IDPH said six cases have been identified in IL.

The outbreak has been connected to pre-cut melon purchased at any Illinois Walmart.

IL cases range in age from 23 to 87 years and have been reported in all regions of the state.

Consumers who purchased pre-cut melon from these stores should not eat the products and should throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for a refund.

The investigation is ongoing to determine if products went to additional stores or states.

Salmonella symptoms tend to include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps between 12 and 72 hours after someone eats the contaminated food. Several of those people have been hospitalized as a result. Most people are able to fully recover in 4 to 7 days.

- If you recently bought some pre-cut melons, you'll want to throw them out depending where they were bought.

It's likely more cases will turn up, the CDC said. It only applies to pre-cut melon and fruit salad mixes containing melon. Young children, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems are more vulnerable to severe illness.

The US Food and Drug Administration, which is investigating the outbreak alongside the CDC, is working to identify a supplier of pre-cut melon to stores where ill people shopped. It's important to wash the outside of a melon before cutting into it, as well as to wash your hands, the knife you will use, the cutting board and any other utensils that may come into contact with the fruit.

MI is part of a multistate outbreak of Salmonella. The law firm has brought Salmonella lawsuits against such companies as Cargill, ConAgra, Peanut Corporation of America, Sheetz, Taco Bell, Subway and Wal-Mart.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, Salmonella infections most often cause mild to severe gastroenteritis and severe invasive infections, both which are potentially life-threatening.
