The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) is reporting six cases of Salmonella that match a multi-state outbreak strain. IN has had 11 sickened, while Missouri has had 10, OH has had one case and IL six. IN and MI residents are also advised to throw away melon from Kroger, Jay C, or Payless stores after the outbreaks, according to a CDC press release Friday.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says 60 cases of salmonella have been reported in connection with pre-cut melon sold at grocery stores including Costco, Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, and Walmart. People between the ages of 23 and 87 across the state were reported ill.
People should not eat the recalled cut melon or fruit salad products, the CDC said. Symptoms of salmonella include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria. For some people, though, the diarrhea that accompanies the illness may be severe and require hospitalization. The elderly, infants, and those with weak immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness. Other recalls may be coming as the U.S. Drug and Food Administration learns more.

At least 60 people have been made sick and 31 are in the hospital after eating pre-cut melon contaminated with salmonella, federal health officials said Saturday.
MI is part of a multistate outbreak of Salmonella.
Health officials say only pre-cut melons have been linked at this time and recommend consumers buy whole melons.
