Multi-state Salmonella outbreak connected to Walmart pre-cut melons

The people who took ill came from IL (6), IN (11), MI (32), Missouri (10), and OH (1), the agency said.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said it's now investigating 124 cases in 36 states of people becoming infected with the virus after "being linked to contact live poultry in backyard flocks".

MI is part of a multistate outbreak of Salmonella.

A warning about a salmonella outbreak that's apparently linked to pre-cut melons that were sold at Walmart and other stores in the Midwest. If you have eaten a contaminated pre-cut melon and experience diarrhea, fever and cramps go see a doctor immediately.

The illnesses reported so far began on April 30 with the last instance reported May 28. Other grocery stores could be added to the list.

Most persons infected with Salmonella develop diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria.

After the eruption, people say they had to build an impromptu bridge over hot ashes to try and get the injured the help they need. An Associated Press journalist witnessed five stretchers carrying bags containing human remains being carried out of Los Lotes.

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

Of the 60 cases of reported salmonella infection, 31 have resulted in hospitalization.

The CDC says this particular salmonella outbreak could mean more hospitalized people than usual.

U.S. Food and Drug Administration officials are working alongside the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to identify the precise source of the outbreak.

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

Pre-cut melons have been removed from the shelves in both store chains, while whole melons do not appear to be affected. They should wash their hands and all knives and cutting boards used.
