The departments are urging anyone who purchased pre-cut melon at either Walmart or Kroger to throw it away.

Michigan's Department of Agriculture and Department of Health and Human Services have issued a warning about a salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon. Sixty cases have been reported in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio. IN and MI residents are also advised to throw away melon from Kroger, Jay C, or Payless stores after the outbreaks, according to a CDC press release Friday.

It's not just Walmart pre-cut melon.

The outbreak is believed linked to pre-cut melons, including fruit salad mixes with melon, sold at Walmart and Kroger stores.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says it is trying to identify the source of the Salmonella and may add stores or products to the recall list.




The illnesses reported so far began on April 30 with the last instance reported May 28.

"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. Some people could end up with severe diarrhea that requires a hospital trip. The CDC has indicated there have been more hospitalizations with this outbreak than what is typically seen. They should wash their hands and all knives and cutting boards used.
