Salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon

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 recalled products were distributed to Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, and OH and sold in clear, plastic containers at stores including Costco Wholesale Corp, Kroger Co, Payless, Owen's, Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Walgreens, Walmart Inc, and Whole Foods, a unit of Amazon.com Inc. 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.

-Number of people sickened and hospitalized: The CDC reports 60 people infected, 31 of which have been hospitalized, 51.7 percent. The recalled products were sold in clear containers at Costco, Jay C, Kroger, Payless, Owen's, Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Walgreens, Walmart and Whole Foods.

The company is looking into whether products were sent to any additional stores or states. Those who reported getting sick range in age from less than 1 year to 97 years old with a median age of 67. "The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most persons recover without treatment", the CDC says.
