Pre-Cut Melon Salmonella Outbreak The CDC has reported that pre-cut melons are likely the source of a salmonella outbreak that has affected at least 60 people in 5 states. The CDC advises OH and MI consumers who bought pre-cut melon at a Walmart store to throw the fruit away.

The CDC said that Kroger, Walmart, Payless and Jay C stores located in the affected areas have recalled their products which contained pre-cut melon from the market.

The agency recommends anyone with melon from these retailers or from the infected foods distributor throw them out immediately or return them where they were purchased for a refund.

About 60 people in five states, including five in IN, were sickened by the fruit, the health department said. The illness usually lasts four to seven days, and most people recover without treatment.

Georgia is now on the list of states impacted by a salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon. However, diarrhea for some people may be so severe that they need to be hospitalized.

On October 30, McGowan first publicly responded to the existence of the warrant on Twitter. McGowan told Farrow she has used drugs in the past, but said marijuana was her "jam".

Other symptoms can be much worse for young children and people over 65, however, and the CDC estimates about 450 people die from salmonella each year. Citizens are advised to throw out any melon that has been recalled. Walmart and Kroger are cooperating fully with the investigation and have removed all cut melon associated with this outbreak.

This is unsafe enough to lead to death unless the patient receives immediate treatment with antibiotics.

The FDA, CDC, along with state and local officials are investigating a multi-state outbreak of Salmonella Adelaide infections.

Luckily, the death toll is still null, so far.

Most of those infected with the salmonella strain bought pre-cut melons, including cantaloupe, watermelon, or a fruit salad mix with melon, at one of the stores, according to state officials.
