CDC: Pre-cut melon cause of multistate salmonella outbreak

Jay C, Payless, Whole Foods, Sprouts, and Trader Joe's, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Pre-Cut Melon Salmonella Outbreak The CDC has reported that pre-cut melons are likely the source of a salmonella outbreak that has affected at least 60 people in 5 states. They are sold all over the United States, including in Georgia, Kentucky, and North Carolina, in addition to the states that already have confirmed salmonella cases on their hands.

Will County Health Department Environmental Health Director Tom Casey says there are two sources of information that can help consumers determine if they have pre-cut melons that may be risky.

About 60 people in five states, including five in IN, were sickened by the fruit, the health department said. Symptoms include diarrhea and abdominal cramps and typically appear between 12 and 72 hours after infection.

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. "However, in some persons, the diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to be hospitalized". Those in the affected states are advised to throw the melon away.




No deaths have been reported thus far.

According to the CDC and the FDA, Caito Foods, a food distributor based in Indianapolis, delivered salmonella-infected fruits packages such as pre-cut melons, mixed fruits packages, cantaloupe, and honeydew melon. The melon products have been recalled.

Indianapolis, In. - Precut melon connected to a salmonellosis outbreak may have come from an Indianapolis produce supplier.

More cases may be reported in the coming two weeks. Until now there have been 60 illnesses and 31 hospitalizations. An investigation into the recall is ongoing.

The notice from the CDC does not apply to whole melons or other types of pre-cut fruit. In some cases, the infections can be serious, especially for young children, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems.
