Recall issued for precut cantaloupe, watermelon, melon mixes at Kroger stores

Recall issued for precut cantaloupe, watermelon, melon mixes at Kroger stores

Cases have been reported in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri and OH in patients ranging from 23 to 87 years old.

The Salmonella has been linked to the pre-cut cantaloupe, watermelon or fruit salad containing melon purchased at either Walmart or Kroger stores, including Jay C and Payless stores.

A salmonella outbreak affecting five states including IL and Missouri is linked to pre-cut melons, according to IL health officials. "If you have recently eaten pre-cut melon from a Walmart store and experience diarrhea, fever, and cramps, contact your health care provider", said IDPH Director Nirav D. Shah.

The CDC says Walmart has already removed linked pre-cut melons from shelves.

If you have purchased any fruit that may have been connected with the recall, the CDC is asking that you throw it away immediately.

Six cases have been reported in IL, ranging in the age from 23 to 87 years old.

Of the 60 people reported sick, 31 have been hospitalized due to illness associated with the infection.

Elderly people, infants and anyone with weak immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness. The illness usually lasts four to seven days. "The CDC is not recommending people avoid whole melons", the state said in a press release. The cases have been reported in all regions of the state. "CDC's advice to consumers may expand to include other stores where contaminated pre-cut melon was sold", according to an alert from the CDC. In rare cases, Salmonella infection can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics. The CDC has indicated there have been more hospitalizations with this outbreak than what is typically seen.
