According to Food Safety News, there are 32 cases reported in MI, 11 in IN, 10 in Missouri, six in IL and one in Ohio.

The Illinois Department of Public Health is recommending that no one eat pre-cut melon bought at a Walmart store in the state, due to an outbreak of salmonella.

A salmonella outbreak affecting five states including IL and Missouri is linked to pre-cut melons, according to IL health officials.

Ovechkin was voted victor of the 2018 Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP by members of the Professional Hockey Writers Association. The Capitals are up 3-1 in the series, a win away from their first National Hockey League championship in franchise history.

Walmart stores in IL have removed the product linked to the outbreak from their shelves. "If you have recently eaten pre-cut melon from a Walmart store and experience diarrhea, fever, and cramps, contact your health care provider". Twenty-one people have been hospitalized.

Officials say the IL salmonella cases linked to pre-cut melon affected people ages 23 to 87. Pre-cut melons and fruit salads are seen as the likely source.

People who ate those pre-cut melon products began falling ill with the salmonella adelaide strain of the bacteria in late April, and hospitalization spiked two weeks later, with patients ranging from an infant to a 97-year-old. The cases have been reported in all regions of the state.
