CDC: Salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon

Precut melons Salmonella Outbreak Pre-Cut Melon In 8 States Recalled For Salmonella Outbreak
Celia Hoffman | 12 June, 2018, 07:36

According to our sister station KFOR in Oklahoma City, stores carrying the melon include Walmart, Walgreens, Whole Foods, Kroger, Costco, Jay C, Payless, Owen's, Sprouts and Trader Joe's. The company has since issued a recall notice in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina and OH - removing clear plastic containers of watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe and mixed melons from the shelves. The melon products have been recalled.

"The investigation is ongoing to determine if products went to additional stores or states", the CDC wrote Friday.

Kroger reported that it has withdrawn store-brand precut cantaloupe, watermelon and melon mixes sold at Kroger, Jay C, Owen's and Pay Less stores in IN and MI due to possible salmonella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 Indiana Department of Health, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention were investigating.

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. "On June 7, 2018, Walmart and Kroger removed pre-cut melon linked to this outbreak from all Walmart, Kroger, Jay C and Payless stores from the affected states". Whole melon is still OK to eat, the CDC said. The CDC says 31 of the people sickened have been hospitalized, but there have been no deaths reported.

- The CDC has issued a warning after a group of pre-cut melon products may have led to the hospitalization of over 30 people for salmonella infections. They were produced by Caito Foods in Indianapolis from April 17 through Thursday.

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

"Reports of illnesses linked to these products are under investigation, and Caito Foods is voluntarily recalling the products out of an abundance of caution", the agency said in a statement, adding that it "has ceased producing and distributing these products as the company and FDA continue their investigation".
