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".

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.
