Customers who purchased the melon from the company's IN and MI store locations should not consume them and return them to a store for a full refund or replacement. CDC's advice to consumers may expand to include other stores where contaminated pre-cut melon was sold.

A Centers for Disease Control investigation determined that the multistate outbreak indicates pre-cut melons and fruit salads are the likely source of the salmonella cases.

"Most people who have been infected with this strain of Salmonella bought pre-cut melon at Walmart or Kroger stores in the Midwest".

The CDC says Walmart has already removed linked pre-cut melons from shelves.

IDPH suggests that anyone who has pre-cut melon from Walmart should throw it out, and if they have eaten it and experience diarrhea, fever and cramps, they should contact a health care provider.

While cut melons are the only ones linked to this outbreak, IDPH said people should remember some safety measures for consuming melons bought whole as well.

No deaths have been confirmed to date, but 31 percent of the people infected had to be hospitalized. Whole melons are not included.

The investigation into the outbreak is expanding rapidly. The CDC has indicated there have been more hospitalizations with this outbreak than what is typically seen.
