Health officials link pre-cut melon to salmonella outbreak in MI

A multi-state Salmonella outbreak has been linked to pre-cut melons sold at Missouri and Illinois Walmart stores, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).

The products were sold at stores including Walmart, Walgreens, Costco and Kroger and other.

The recall affected at least 10 large grocery chains, including Whole Foods, which is a subsidiary of Amazon.com, whose chief executive, Jeffrey P. Bezos, owns The Washington Post. The CDC advised OH and MI consumers who bought pre-cut melon at a Walmart store to throw the fruit away.

On Thursday, Walmart, Kroger, Jay C and Payless stores in the affected states removed pre-cut melon products linked to the outbreak, the CDC said in announcing the outbreak. They include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after eating contaminated food.

If you're an OH resident and purchased pre-cut melon from Walmart, or don't remember where you bought the pre-cut melon, throw it away.
