Throw away pre-cut melon, CDC warns in multistate salmonella outbreak

Throw away pre-cut melon, CDC warns in multistate salmonella outbreak

Jay C, Payless, Whole Foods, Sprouts, and Trader Joe's, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

A multistate Salmonella outbreak linked to cut melons is now being investigated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and various state and local health officials.

The FDA says 60 people in five states became ill between April 30 and May 28.

The CDC suggests people to not eat and throw away the pre-cut melons purchased from any of the Walmart stores in Indiana, Michigan, Ohio or Missouri.

Officials say people should throw away or return recalled products. Signs of illness typically occur within 12 to 72 hours and last for four to seven days.

The government agency said that people living in those states should avoid eating cut melon or fruit salad products sold at the large retail stores.

Only pre-cut melon is affected by the recall. On the other hand, in MI alone, there were 32 salmonellosis cases confirmed by the CDC. No deaths have been reported so far. In such cases, 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.

Costco in Wilmington does not carry any fresh-cut melon products and is not impacted by the recall, according to a manager reached by phone on Saturday morning.

The products recalled were honeydew melon, cantaloupe, fresh-cut watermelon, as well as fresh-cut mixed fruit products.

Only pre-cut melon is affected by the recall. Although the shelf life of the melon is limited, Kroger said, it issued the alert out of an abundance of caution.

Salmonellosis is a foodborne illness caused by a bacterium named salmonella. The CDC investigation indicates pre-cut melons, including fruit salads, are a likely source of this multistate outbreak.
