The recalled products were distributed to stores in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, and Ohio.

No deaths have been reported but 32 of the 60 cases of people falling ill have happened in MI.

Health authorities have narrowed the source of a salmonella outbreak to a melon facility in Indianapolis.

If you've purchased pre-cut melon from Walmart or Kroger, including fruit salad mixes with melon, you should throw it away.

For now the agency is recommending that Missourians discard melon and fruit salads that contain it if it came from Walmart or if they don't remember where it came from.

A multi-state Salmonella outbreak has been linked to pre-cut melons sold at Missouri and Illinois Walmart stores, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH).

Facebook says software bug made 14mn users’ private posts public
As a result, many of those users may have unknowingly published posts as public that they intended only for certain friends. If someone made all posts "friends only" in the past, it will set their next post to "friends only" as well.

Symptoms of a salmonella infection can appear within 12 to 72 hours of being exposed.

Of the 60 people reported sick, 31 have been hospitalized due to illness associated with the infection. Walmart and Kroger removed all pre-cut melon from the states where cases occurred.

The pre-cut melons have been removed from Walmart store shelves in IL.

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.

The advice from the CDC does not apply to whole melons. The elderly, infants, and those with weak immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness. The CDC has indicated there have been more hospitalizations with this outbreak than what is typically seen.
