The Centers for Disease Control is tracking a multi-state outbreak of salmonella linked to pre-cut melon that has already sickened 60 people, including 10 in Missouri.

"Most people who have been infected with this strain of Salmonella bought pre-cut melon at Walmart or Kroger stores in the Midwest".

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is now trying to find the supplier to affected stores.

Salmonella can develop 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated food and usually lasts four to seven days.

The products were packaged in clear, plastic clamshell containers and distributed in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio.

People who reportedly fell ill, obtained their chicks and ducklings from several sources, including feed supply stores, websites, hatcheries and from relatives, the agency said.

MI is part of a multistate outbreak of Salmonella. Therefore, it is recommended that people not eat pre-cut melon from Walmart stores anywhere in IL. Other grocery stores could be added to the list.

In addition, consumers who do not remember what store their pre-cut melon was purchased from should also discard it without consuming it.

Elderly people, infants and anyone with weak immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness. The CDC has indicated there have been more hospitalizations with this outbreak than what is typically seen. Make sure to wash the melons before you start cutting. The law firm has brought Salmonella lawsuits against such companies as Cargill, ConAgra, Peanut Corporation of America, Sheetz, Taco Bell, Subway and Wal-Mart. In rare cases, salmonella infection can cause death when a person is not treated promptly with antibiotics.
