CNN reports that Caito Foods LLC is voluntarily recalling pre-cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, and fruit medleys containing these melons due to the possibility of salmonella contamination.
So far, 93 people have gotten sick. No deaths have been reported. The outbreak has affected nine states, including Michigan.
The products are packaged in clear, plastic clamshell containers and are sold at Target, Walmart, Trader Joe's, and other retailers.
According to the FDA,
Because it is possible that products could still be on store shelves, this recall extends to both retailers and consumers. Consumers should not consume the product and should promptly dispose of any remaining product."
A full list of the affected products, their UPC codes, use-by dates, and the retailers at which they were sold can be found on the FDA's website.
