CDC: Pre-cut melon recalled after multi-state salmonella outbreak

-States with people sickened: MI (32), IN (11), Missouri (10), IL (six) and OH (one). The company has since issued a recall notice in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina and OH - removing clear plastic containers of watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe and mixed melons from the shelves.

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.

No deaths have been reported, but 60 people have been sickened in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and Ohio.

Packages of pre-cut fresh fruit have been linked to a salmonella outbreak that sickened dozens of people, according to the Centers for Disease Control. In Georgia, these include Costco, Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Walgreens, Walmart and Whole Foods.

"The investigation is ongoing to determine if products went to additional stores or states", the CDC wrote Friday. Kroger's pre-cut melon and pre-cut fruit salads sold in Kroger stores in Georgia are sourced from a different supplier, according to Kroger's Atlanta division corporate affairs manager Felix Turner.

"Check your fridge and freezer for them and throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for a refund", the CDC said.

"If you don't remember where you bought pre-cut melon, don't eat it and throw it away", the CDC said in a statement. "On June 7, 2018, Walmart and Kroger removed pre-cut melon linked to this outbreak from all Walmart, Kroger, Jay C and Payless stores from the affected states". They were produced by Caito Foods in Indianapolis from April 17 through Thursday.

Retailers are being urged not sell or serve recalled precut melon products distributed by Caito Foods Distribution, Gordon Food Service and SpartanNash Distribution.
