Pre-cut melons linked to Salmonella outbreaks across 5 states

At this point, at least 60 people across nine states most recently including Georgia, have been sickened by salmonella according the Centers for Disease Control.

"The Illinois Department of Public Health is urging people not to eat pre-cut melon purchased from any Walmart store in Illinois, or any of the other affected states, at this time", said IDPH Director Nirav D. Shah, M.D., J.D.

As per the CDC, around 60 people have fallen sick which includes six cases reported in IL, 11 cases in IN, 10 cases in Missouri, 32 cases on MI and one in Ohio.

In news that is sure to strike fear in the heart of fruit salad lovers everywhere, an outbreak of salmonella has been traced to pre-cut melons sold at Walmart, Trader Joe's, Walgreens, Whole Foods, Kroger, and Amazon, among other stores. 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.

Diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps are the symptoms of salmonella infection.

If you bought pre-cut melon in clear plastic containers, federal health officials are asking you to check your fridge to avoid getting sick from Salmonella bacteria.
