All 60 people were sickened in five states-Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, and Ohio-all located in the Midwest region of the U.S.

No deaths have been reported, but 60 people have been sickened in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, and Ohio. Director Nirav Shah is urging people not to eat pre-cut melons purchased from any Walmart store in IL.

Separately, the CDC is reporting an outbreak of salmonella linked to backyard chickens that had made 124 people in 36 states sick. The Indiana health department said symptoms include diarrhea and stomach cramps and typically appear between 12 and 72 hours after infection. Walmart stores in IL have removed pre-cut melons linked to this outbreak from their shelves. The CDC says 21 people have been hospitalized.

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.
