Georgia impacted by pre-cut melon salmonella outbreak

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Georgia is now on the list of states impacted by a salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the 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.

WSB-TV reports the outbreak, which started around the end of April, has spread into Georgia, Michigan, Ohio, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina and Missouri.

Caito Foods, LLC recalled fresh cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, and fresh-cut fruit medley products produced at its facility in Indianapolis, Indiana. So far, 60 people have been infected.

Anyone who bought pre-cut melon or any items containing pre-cut melon from any of the stores is urged to throw the product away.
