Cut melons linked to salmonella outbreak in Michigan, Indiana

Cut melons linked to salmonella outbreak in Michigan, Indiana

"If you have recently eaten pre-cut melon from a Walmart store and experience diarrhea, fever, and cramps, contact your healthcare provider".

It's not just Walmart pre-cut melon. The CDC said people can contract the virus from touching live poultry or their environment, even if the birds appear to be healthy and clean. Several of those people have been hospitalized as a result.

North Carolina has had the most reported cases with 17, followed by Louisiana with 8 and 7 in Michigan, Minnesota and Oklahoma.

If you bought pre-cut melon at a Walmart in Missouri, throw it away. Now.

Walmart stores in IL have removed pre-cut melons linked to this outbreak from their shelves. The CDC is not recommending people avoid whole melons.

There is only one reported case related to this outbreak in OH thus far.

Illnesses were reported from April 30 to May 28, and the people affected range in age from younger than 1 year old to 97 years old.

The people who took ill came from IL (6), IN (11), MI (32), Missouri (10), and OH (1), the agency said. The illness usually lasts four to seven days, and most people recover without treatment. The elderly, infants, and those with weak immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness. In rare cases, salmonella infection can cause death when a person is not treated promptly with antibiotics.

More information and steps to take to reduce the risk of infection can be found on the CDC Salmonella website at www.cdc.gov/salmonella/.
