Walmart and Kroger are cooperating fully with the investigation and have removed all cut melon associated with this outbreak.

The Illinois Department of Public Health says if you have any pre-cut melon from Walmart, throw it out.

The Center of Disease Control and Prevention reports that the melons, including fruit salads, are a likely source for 60 outbreak cases from the following five states: Illinois, Missouri, Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. "If you bought pre-cut melon from Walmart, IDPH says you should throw it out right away".

- The CDC has issued a warning after a group of pre-cut melon products may have led to the hospitalization of over 30 people for salmonella infections.

The pre-cut melons have been removed from Walmart store shelves in IL.

The melon products have been recalled, but authorities advise consumers not to eat pre-cut melon products produced at Caito Foods and packaged in clear, plastic clamshell containers.

The individuals who became ill said they ate pre-cut cantaloupe, watermelon or a fruit salad mix that contained melon.
