Salmonella warning for pre-cut melons bought at Kroger, Walmart

Pre-cut melon sold in Indiana recalled by Kroger due to possible salmonella contamination	 	 	 			melon cut into slices

The Center for Disease Control says at least 60 people have gotten sick, including six in IL. Twenty-one people have been hospitalized. Other states that have reported illnesses as part of this outbreak include IL (6 cases), IN (11 cases), Missouri (10 cases), and OH (1 case).

The CDC said on Friday that 124 people have been sickened in 36 states after contact with live poultry, such as chicks and ducklings in backyard flocks. The CDC said it is working to identify a common supplier that might be the original source.

The CDC said Walmart and Kroger stores in the affected states had removed pre-cut melon linked to the outbreak from their shelves.

Walmart settled lawsuits in 2014 with the families of some of the 33 people who died of listeria infections traced to cantaloupes from Colorado that the retailer sold.


The illnesses were first reported on April 30, and the last documented case was on May 28.

North Carolina has had the most reported cases with 17, followed by Louisiana with 8 and 7 in Michigan, Minnesota and Oklahoma. If you have eaten a contaminated pre-cut melon and experience diarrhea, fever and cramps go see a doctor immediately.

Officials say the IL salmonella cases linked to pre-cut melon affected people ages 23 to 87. Symptoms of salmonella include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria. The elderly, infants and people with compromised immune systems have the highest risk for serious illness. Individuals who believe they may have become ill with Salmonella should contact their health care provider.

This investigation is expanding rapidly.
