Indianapolis, In. - Precut melon connected to a salmonellosis outbreak may have come from an Indianapolis produce supplier.

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. Although the shelf life of the melon is limited, Kroger said, it issued the alert out of an abundance of caution.

Mixed Fruit Products that include fresh cut watermelon, cantaloupe, or honeydew melon are among those recalled by Caito Foods. During the 2012 to 2013 season, there were 171 reported deaths, while an average flu season sees about 110. In some cases, the infections can be serious, especially for young children, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems.
