Pre-Cut Fruit Sold At Walmart, Target Recalled In Illinois

Centers for Disease Control investigators said they have identified 93 illnesses from a certain strain of salmonella and say they could be linked to the fresh-cut melon products. The contaminated melons were produced at the Caito Foods LLC facility in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The melon was sold and bought in 9 states: Illinois, Alabama, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ohio and Missouri.

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.

Salmonella contamination concerns have prompted the recall of some melon products sold at Walmart, Target, GFS, Trader Joes, Whole Foods and other stores in 16 states including OH and Pennsylvania.

The CDC has issued a food safety alert due to a recent salmonella outbreak from pre-cut melons distributed in 16 states.

'Because it is possible that products could still be on store shelves, this recall extends to both retailers and consumers, ' the FDA posted.
