Multi-state Salmonella outbreak connected to Walmart pre-cut melons

Multi-state Salmonella outbreak connected to Walmart pre-cut melons

Other states that have reported illnesses as part of this outbreak include IL (6 cases), IN (11 cases), Missouri (10 cases) and OH (1 case). So far, the CDC reports the outbreak has affected five Midwestern states.60 people have been infected and 30 people were hospitalized.

Health officials recommend people throw away any pre-cut melon from Walmart stores anywhere in IL and say additional grocery stores may be added as the investigation continues.

The facility is being investigated by the Food and Drug Administration and Caito Foods has ceased production of those products while the investigation is underway. Caito Foods recalled fresh-cut watermelons, honeydews, melons, cantaloupes and fresh-cut fruit medleys on Friday.

A recall has affected eight states, the CDC said.

The Illinois Department of Public Health is reporting six cases of Salmonella that match a multi-state outbreak strain.

The recall applies only to pre-cut melon and fruit salad mixes containing melon. "If you have recently eaten pre-cut melon from a Walmart store and experience diarrhea, fever, and cramps, contact your health care provider". IDPH said the illness usually lasts four to seven days.

Consumers who do not remember what store their pre-cut melon was purchased from should also discard it.

Other symptoms can be much worse for young children and people over 65, however, and the CDC estimates about 450 people die of salmonella each year. While the current guidance applies only to pre-cut melons and not whole melons, Hoosiers should always wash whole melons before cutting them to reduce the risk of illness. When this happens, the salmonella infection may spread to the bloodstream and to other body sites, leading to a life-threatening infection that requires prompt treatment with antibiotics.
