Public health officials report salmonella outbreak


According to a press release from the Illinois Department of Public Health, Caito Foods, LLC recalled pre-cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe and pre-cut fruit medley.

The recalled melons were distributed to multiple stores in clear, plastic clamshell containers, so consumers should remember to look at label and brand information to identify the product.

According to the CDC, 93 cases in nine states were reported in the month of March.  

In Illinois, five cases have been reported in the north-eastern and eastern part of the state.
