Recall Alert: Throw away pre-cut melon

Salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon

Officials are advising people to avoid eating anything on the new recall list, which includes specific brands of "fresh cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, and fresh cut fruit medley products".

Only pre-cut melon is affected by the recall.

The CDC reported Saturday that the melon has been recalled in eight states: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Georgia, Kentucky and North Carolina.

The investigation is ongoing to determine if products went to additional stores or states, the agencies said.

At least 60 people have been sickened and dozens have been hospitalized with salmonella after tainted pre-cut melons were distributed to stores such as Walmart, Kroger, Costco and Whole Foods in several states, federal officials said.

The Cincinnati-based supermarket retailer said it was informed about the salmonella outbreak by the CDC and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on June 7, and customers who have purchased affected products can return them to a store for a full refund or a replacement.

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. Most people bought pre-cut melon at Walmart or Kroger stores in the Midwest.

So far, the CDC said, 31 of 60 victims have been hospitalized, though none have died.

Epidemiologic and preliminary traceback evidence indicates that precut melon supplied by Caito Foods is "a likely source of this multistate outbreak", the CDC said in a statement on Friday. 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. They were produced by Caito Foods in Indianapolis from April 17 through Thursday.

In a tweet posted on Sunday, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb urged consumers in the eight affected states to check the "fridge and freezer for recalled pre-cut melon linked to Salmonella outbreak".
