Health officials link pre-cut melon to salmonella outbreak in MI


The Centers for Disease Control is tracking a multi-state outbreak of salmonella linked to pre-cut melon that has already sickened 60 people, including 10 in Missouri.

To date, 60 people infected with the outbreak strain have been reported in five states, including 32 cases in MI.

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

Most people who have been infected with salmonella Adelaide bought pre-cut melon at Walmart or Kroger stores in the Midwest, health officials said. "If you have recently purchased pre-cut melon from Walmart, throw it out". All of them reported eating pre-cut cantaloupe, watermelon, or a fruit salad mix with one or both of them.

Walmart stores in IL have removed pre-cut melons linked to this outbreak from their shelves.

The CDC is not recommending that people avoid whole melons.

People who reportedly fell ill, obtained their chicks and ducklings from several sources, including feed supply stores, websites, hatcheries and from relatives, the agency said. No deaths have been confirmed to date.

"In interviews, 55 (74%) of 74 ill people with information available reported contact with chicks or ducklings in the week before their illness started", the CDC said.

Other states included in this outbreak include Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and Ohio.

Individuals who believe they might have gotten salmonella should contact their health care provider.

The investigation into the outbreak is expanding rapidly.
