Kroger, Walmart pull recalled fresh-cut melon products

60 people have been sickened and 31 people have been hospitalized after eating the contaminated melon

On Friday, Caito Foods recalled fresh cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe and fresh-cut fruit medley products containing these melons produced at their facility in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The CDC reported Saturday that the melon has been recalled in eight states: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Georgia, Kentucky and North Carolina.

People who ate those pre-cut melon products began falling ill with the salmonella adelaide strain of the bacteria in late April, and hospitalization spiked two weeks later, with patients ranging from an infant to a 97-year-old.

The list of recalled products related to this outbreak is absolutely huge. The CDC said authorities are investigating whether the affected products went to additional stores or states. Kroger's pre-cut melon and pre-cut fruit salads sold in Kroger stores in Georgia are sourced from a different supplier, according to Kroger's Atlanta division corporate affairs manager Felix Turner. "On June 7, 2018, Walmart and Kroger removed pre-cut melon linked to this outbreak from all Walmart, Kroger, Jay C and Payless stores from the affected states". Most people bought pre-cut melon at Walmart or Kroger stores in the Midwest.

In news that is sure to strike fear in the heart of fruit salad lovers everywhere, an outbreak of salmonella has been traced to pre-cut melons sold at Walmart, Trader Joe's, Walgreens, Whole Foods, Kroger, and Amazon, among other stores. The CDC says 31 of the people sickened have been hospitalized, but there have been no deaths reported.

"The potential that these products are contaminated with salmonella was discovered through analyzing reports made by state departments of public health", Indianapolis-based Caito Foods said in a statement.

If you have purchased any fruit that may have been connected with the recall, the CDC is asking that you throw it away immediately. "Caito Foods has ceased producing and distributing these products as the company and FDA continue their investigation".
