Salmonella cases across Midwest linked to pre-chopped melons

  • Massive salmonella outbreak linked to backyard chicken flocks

Other states also have reported illnesses - including Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and OH - with 28 sickened outside of MI.

Thirty-one people have been hospitalized in this outbreak, the CDC said, and no deaths have been reported.

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

The CDC says Walmart has already removed linked pre-cut melons from shelves.

The CDC said on Friday that 124 people have been sickened in 36 states after contact with live poultry, such as chicks and ducklings in backyard flocks.


A CDC investigation indicates pre-cut melons, including fruit salads, are a likely source of the outbreak in Michigan, Indiana, Missouri, Illinois and Ohio.

The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD) says most people who have been infected with this strain of Salmonella bought pre-cut melon at Walmart or Kroger stores in the Midwest. Thirty-two of those cases were in MI. If you have recently purchased pre-cut melon from Walmart, throw it out.

This investigation is expanding rapidly. Signs of illness typically occur within 12 to 72 hours and last for four to seven days. They include cramps, fever and diarrhea and while most healthy people can recover without seeking medical care, babies, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems may suffer from a more severe form of illness, the release said. In rare cases, Salmonella infection can cause death unless the person is treated promptly with antibiotics.

More information and steps to take to reduce the risk of infection can be found on the CDC Salmonella website at www.cdc.gov/salmonella/.
