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.

IN has had 11 sickened, while Missouri has had 10, OH has had one case and IL six.

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

Health officials recommend people throw away any pre-cut melon from Walmart stores anywhere in IL and say additional grocery stores may be added as the investigation continues.

A preliminary investigation conducted by the CDC linked the salmonella outbreak to a Caito Foods facility in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Those who reported illness said they had eaten pre-cut cantaloupe, watermelon, honeydew melon, or a fruit salad mix with melon. They were distributed to Costco, Jay C, Kroger, Payless, Owen's, Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Walgreens, Walmart, and Whole Foods/Amazon.

The pre-cut melons have been removed from Walmart store shelves in IL. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is working to identify the source of Salmonella and anticipated more recalled to be issued as more information becomes available. IDPH said the illness usually lasts four to seven days.

Whole melons are still safe to eat, according to the CDC. Some cases require hospitalization and the illness can be fatal.
