Salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon

Salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon

So far, six cases have been reported in the state - as well as several other cases in Indiana, Michigan, Missouri and OH - in all regions of IL, the IDPH release stated. IN and MI residents are also advised to throw away melon from Kroger, Jay C, or Payless stores after the outbreaks, according to a CDC press release Friday.

Officials say the IL salmonella cases linked to pre-cut melon affected people ages 23 to 87.

The CDC said Walmart and Kroger stores in the affected states had removed pre-cut melon linked to the outbreak from their shelves. An investigation is still ongoing to determine if other states or stores are affected by the outbreak.

Salmonella symptoms tend to include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps between 12 and 72 hours after someone eats the contaminated food. However, for some, the diarrhea may be so severe that hospitalization is necessary.
