Cut melon sold in Kansas linked to US salmonella outbreak recalled

Reports of illnesses linked to these products are under investigation, and Caito Foods is voluntarily recalling the products out of an abundance of caution.

The products were made at the Caito Foods Indianapolis plant.

"If you can not determine if pre-cut melon you purchased was produced by Caito Foods LLC, don't eat it and throw it away", the CDC advised.

Caito Foods is recalling pre-cut melon from stores due to the possibility of salmonella contamination.

Symptoms of salmonella infections include diarrhea, stomach cramps and sometimes vomiting and fever.

Salmonella contamination concerns have prompted the recall of some melon products sold at Walmart, Target, GFS, Trader Joes, Whole Foods and other stores in 16 states including OH and Pennsylvania. The illness can last up to a week, although most people recover without treatment. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections, such as infected aneurysms, endocarditis and arthritis.

You usually get salmonella by eating contaminated food. Caito Food and SpartanNash Company supply to independent retailers, so it is important to look at the label description and brand information to identify the product.

Nine states have reported cases of Salmonella linked to the company's melon products, including three in Minnesota and one in Wisconsin.

The recall extends to retailers and consumers as products may still be on store shelves. "However, consumers may still have these products in their homes", FDA officials said in a news release.

According to the FDA, Walmart stores were informed to pull the products from store shelves in impacted states on April 11.
