The melon was sold in plastic clamshell containers at Costco, Jay C, Kroger, Payless Owen's, Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Walgreens, Walmart, and Whole Foods/Amazon.

The recall only affects pre-cut melon and fruit salad mixes containing melon, not whole melons, the CDC said.

The recalled products were distributed to Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, and OH and sold in clear, plastic containers at stores including Costco Wholesale Corp, Kroger Co, Payless, Owen's, Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Walgreens, Walmart Inc, and Whole Foods, a unit of Amazon.com Inc.

People who ate those pre-cut melon products began falling ill with the salmonella adelaide strain of the bacteria in late April, and hospitalization spiked two weeks later, with patients ranging from an infant to a 97-year-old. Each of their products contained at least one melon produced at the company's facility in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Health officials are investigating a multistate salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon.
