Pre-Cut Melon Linked to Salmonella Outbreak

Caito Foods is voluntarily recalling fresh-cut melon sold throughout the country after possible salmonella contamination sickened 93 people.

In a statement, the company said the recall refers to fresh cut watermelon, fresh cut honeydew melon, fresh cut cantaloupe and fresh cut mixed fruit containing one of these melons sold in stores, including Whole Foods, Walmart, Trader Joe’s, Kroger and Target. The melons were also sold to several independent retailers.

The products were packaged in clear, plastic clamshell containers and distributed in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. The product may still be on store shelves so customers should look at brand information before buying fresh-cut melon.
