Hancock County woman sickened by recalled melon

Salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon

About 60 people in five states, including five in IN, were sickened by the fruit, the health department said. Each of their products contained at least one melon produced at the company's facility in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The Atlanta-based Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is advising consumers in eight states - including Georgia - that fresh-cut melon products from a distributor in Indianapolis may have been contaminated by salmonella. They were sold in clear plastic containers at stores including Costco, Jay C, Kroger, Payless, Owen's, Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Walgreens, Walmart, and Whole Foods. The CDC says 31 of the people sickened have been hospitalized, but there have been no deaths reported.

The FDA said it's working with the CDC to determine if the recalled products went to additional stores or states. Those who reported getting sick range in age from less than 1 year to 97 years old with a median age of 67.

If you have purchased any fruit that may have been connected with the recall, the CDC is asking that you throw it away immediately. Check out the full list of recalled products for UPC codes and SKUs to make sure you're not accidentally eating salmonella.

Pre-cut melon purchased at Kroger, Jay C or Payless stores in IN and MI. Salmonella sickens more than one million people annually in the States, with common symptoms including temporary fever, vomiting and abdominal pain.

It takes an average of two to four weeks from the time a person becomes ill until the illness is reported, so illnesses that occurred after May 20 might not yet be counted, the CDC website states. In some people, however, the CDC said that diarrhea may be so severe that the patient needs to hospitalized as the salmonella infection may spread from the intestines to the bloodstream and then to other places in the body.
