The CDC has also issued a warning about a salmonella risk from pre-cut melon purchased at Kroger, Jay C and Payless stories in IN and MI.

The CDC reported Saturday that the melon has been recalled in eight states: Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Georgia, Kentucky and North Carolina.

The affected fruit was sold in clear plastic containers at Walmart, Costco, Kroger and Walgreens stores, among others. "However, if a Kroger customer has any concerns about pre-cut melon and/or pre-made fruit salads purchased at a Kroger store, they may return it to the store for a full refund".

Of the 60 cases reported, 31 (66 percent) have been hospitalized due to illness associated with the infection. The illness often lasts four to seven days.

According to the CDC and the FDA, Caito Foods, a food distributor based in Indianapolis, delivered salmonella-infected fruits packages such as pre-cut melons, mixed fruits packages, cantaloupe, and honeydew melon.

According to the CDC, Salmonella infections most often cause mild to severe gastroenteritis and severe invasive infections, both which are potentially life-threatening.

No deaths have been reported thus far.
