  • Kroger said on Thursday the CDC and the FDA notified them that multiple illnesses have been reported in connection with this outbreak

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reporting 60 cases of Salmonella in five states including IL.

People who became ill said they got live chicks and ducklings from relatives and from businesses such as feed supply stores, websites and hatcheries, according to the CDC.

The facility is being investigated by the Food and Drug Administration and Caito Foods has ceased production of those products while the investigation is underway.

Packages of fresh-cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe and mixed fruit have been recalled in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio.

The products were sold at stores including Walmart, Walgreens, Costco and Kroger and other.

The government agency said that people living in those states should avoid eating cut melon or fruit salad products sold at the large retail stores. Kroger Co. said customers who purchased the melon from the company's IN and MI store locations should not consume them and return them to a store for a full refund or replacement. The CDC advises individuals who are unsure where they purchased a pre-cut melon product to discard it.

Diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps are the symptoms of salmonella infection. The illness usually lasts 4 to 7 days, and most people recover without treatment. In rare cases, salmonella infection can cause death when a person is not treated promptly with antibiotics.

Consumers who do not remember what store their pre-cut melon was purchased from should also discard it. It does not apply to whole melons.
