Salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melons — CDC

The Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development (MDARD), Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), and local health departments are working closely with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and public health and regulatory officials in several states to investigate a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Adelaide linked to consumption of cut melons.

Caito Foods is voluntarily recalling fresh cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe and fresh-cut mixed fruit containing one of these melons, produced at the Caito Foods facility in Indianapolis.

People are urged not to eat pre-cut melons purchased from any Walmart or Kroger store in OH, or in any other affected states.

Walmart and Kroger have removed all cut melon associated with the outbreak. If you have eaten a contaminated pre-cut melon and experience diarrhea, fever and cramps go see a doctor immediately.

MI is part of a multistate outbreak of Salmonella.

Trump arrives in Quebec for G7 summit, wants Russian Federation invited back
According to CNN , Trudeau asked Trump how he justified imposing tariffs as a national security issue during a May 25 phone call. In a series of tweets on the eve of the summit, the president gave a glimpse of the issues he's prioritizing for negotiations.

The investigation into the outbreak is expanding rapidly.

In Illinois, cases are happening in people between the ages of 23 and 87 across the state. Symptoms of salmonella include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria. The elderly, infants and people with compromised immune systems have the highest risk for serious illness.

So far all the illnesses in Missouri have been traced to melon purchased at Walmart stores, but the CDC said the investigation is ongoing and the alert may expand to include other chains. Fruit should not touch raw meat.

Salmonella: Marler Clark, The Food Safety Law Firm, is the nation's leading law firm representing victims of Salmonella outbreaks. Marler Clark is the only law firm in the nation with a practice focused exclusively on foodborne illness litigation. The law firm has brought Salmonella lawsuits against such companies as Cargill, ConAgra, Peanut Corporation of America, Sheetz, Taco Bell, Subway and Wal-Mart.
