Pre-cut melon cause of multistate salmonella outbreak — CDC

On Thursday, Walmart and Kroger removed pre-cut melon linked to this outbreak from all the stores in the affected states, the CDC reported.

On Friday, Caito Foods recalled fresh cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe and fresh-cut fruit medley products containing these melons produced at their facility in Indianapolis, Indiana. It was sold in clear plastic clamshell containers at Costco, Jay C, Kroger, Payless, Owen's, Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Walgreens, Walmart and Whole Foods/Amazon.

They were distributed by Caito Foods to stores in eight states: Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, and Ohio. The melon products have been recalled.

The investigation is ongoing to determine if products went to additional stores or states, the agencies said.

Kroger reported that it has withdrawn store-brand precut cantaloupe, watermelon and melon mixes sold at Kroger, Jay C, Owen's and Pay Less stores in IN and MI due to possible salmonella contamination.

The CDC notes that a preliminary investigation has centered on Caito Foods LLC, which is the distributor of the melons that have been confirmed as contaminated.

The head of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on Sunday urged residents of eight USA states to check for recalled pre-cut melon that is linked to an outbreak of Salmonella. 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.

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.

Any pre-cut melon or fruit salads with melon if you don't remember where it was purchased. The CDC said that 60 people have reportedly been infected with a strain of Salmonella Adelaide, with 31 people hospitalized.

No deaths have been reported thus far. Officials say people should throw away or return recalled products.
