  • Massive salmonella outbreak linked to backyard chicken flocks

A multistate outbreak of salmonella linked to pre-cut melon has sickened 60 people in five Midwestern states, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported Friday.

Thirty-one people have been hospitalized in this outbreak, the CDC said, and no deaths have been reported.

The products were packaged in clear, plastic clamshell containers and distributed in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio. "CDC's advice to consumers may expand to include other stores where contaminated pre-cut melon was sold", according to an alert from the CDC.

Pre-cut melons have been removed from the shelves in both store chains, while whole melons do not appear to be affected. The CDC said it is working to identify a common supplier that might be the original source.

Health officials are investigating a multi-state outbreak of salmonella linked to the consumption of pre-cut melons purchased at grocery stores.

The illnesses started on April 30 and ranged through May 28.

IL cases range in age from 23 to 87 years and have been reported in all regions of the state.

Several health agencies are warning customers of Kroger and Walmart about pre-cut melons that were sold being infected with Salmonella in the Midwest. It only applies to pre-cut melon and fruit salad mixes containing melon. The people impacted were ages 1 to 97-years-old.

Salmonella exposure usually involves symptoms of diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria.

Elderly people, infants and anyone with weak immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.

The investigation into the outbreak is expanding rapidly. In rare cases, Salmonella infection can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics.
