Salmonella Prompts Precut Melon Recall in 8 States

CDC: Pre-cut melon recalled after multi-state salmonella outbreak

The company has since issued a recall notice in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina and OH - removing clear plastic containers of watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe and mixed melons from the shelves.

The salmonella outbreak in eight states has been linked to pre-cut melon sold at Walmart, Costco, Jay C, Payless, Whole Foods, Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Walgreens and Kroger stores.

However, in a statement a Kroger spokesperson said, "Pre-cut melon and pre-made fruit salad with melon sold in Kroger stores in Georgia are not affected by the recent recall by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention".

The CDC said evidence suggested that melon supplied by Caito Foods "is a likely source of this multistate outbreak".

Paris incident: Armed man takes hostages
The hostages are being held in the internal courtyard of the building, which contains a mix of offices and residential apartments. Police would not immediately confirm whether the person holding the hostages was armed or describe the nature of his demands.

The CDC said authorities are investigating whether the affected products went to additional stores or states. The reported cases were in IL (6), in (11), MI (32), Missouri (10) and OH (1). They are sold all over the United States, including in Georgia, Kentucky, and North Carolina, in addition to the states that already have confirmed salmonella cases on their hands. The FDA advises consumers who have purchased these products to throw them away or return them to the place of purchase for a refund. Caito's website says the Indianapolis Service Center and Fresh Cut facility is located at 3120 N. Post Road.

No deaths have been reported.

Kroger announced last week it had removed the affected products from its stores in IN and MI "out of an abundance of caution", and has temporarily suspended shipments of any new products from Caito Foods.

- 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. "Caito Foods has ceased producing and distributing these products as the company and FDA continue their investigation".
