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

Cropped

Currently, the outbreak is limited to five states in the Midwest, with 32 of the 60 cases in MI. No deaths have been reported from the bacterial infections, but 31 people have been hospitalized.

The CDC says the outbreak is linked to pre-cut melon.

This includes pre-cut melon in salad mixes.

For now the agency is recommending that Missourians discard melon and fruit salads that contain it if it came from Walmart or if they don't remember where it came from.

Most of the 60 people who have been infected with the strain of salmonella purchased pre-cut melon from either a Walmart or Kroger store, according to a release. The CDC said it is working to identify a common supplier that might be the original source.

A warning about a salmonella outbreak that's apparently linked to pre-cut melons that were sold at Walmart and other stores in the Midwest.

The Star left a message with Walmart Friday and is awaiting a response.

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.

"In interviews, 55 (74%) of 74 ill people with information available reported contact with chicks or ducklings in the week before their illness started", the CDC said. Walmart and Kroger removed all pre-cut melon from the states where cases occurred. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most people recover without treatment.

Individuals who believe they might have gotten salmonella should contact their health care provider.
