Melon Salmonella Lawyer: Two Melon Salmonella Outbreaks in 2 Years

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that pre-cut melons that are incorporated into fruit salad mixes are a likely source of the salmonella outbreak spreading across these nine states. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is advising consumers to not eat fresh cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, and fresh-cut fruit medley products containing any of these melons produced at the Caito Foods facility in Indianapolis, Indiana, that have now been recalled.

Melon Salmonella Lawyer: Caito Foods once again recalls melons for salmonella

Less than a year after contaminated melon produced and distributed by Caito Foods sickened a number of consumers because of salmonella contamination, the company is once again recalling melons, including fresh cut watermelon, fresh cut honeydew melon, fresh cut cantaloupe, and fresh cut mixed fruit containing one of these melons. The recalled melons, produced at the company’s Indianapolis facility, are potentially contaminated with salmonella.  According to Melon Salmonella Lawyer Ron Simon. “This is the second time in as many years that we have seen a major recall and salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melons.”

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are investigating at least 93 illnesses that are linked to the salmonella found in the Caito Foods melons. Caito has temporarily suspended the production and distribution of the recalled melon products while the investigation continues.

Recalled melons that are potentially contaminated with salmonella were distributed to stores in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. The melons were packaged in clear, plastic clamshell containers.

Stores that received the potentially contaminated melons and that may still have them on their shelves include Kroger, Target, Walmart, Trader Joe’s, and Whole Foods. Recalled products include watermelon chunks, cantaloupe chunks, honeydew chunks, seasonal fruit salad, fruit spear assorted, melon mix, watermelon spears, fruit snack tray, and fruit mix.

Consumers who have these melon products in their homes should not eat them but should dispose of them properly. Salmonella contamination can cause consumers to experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain. In rare circumstances, infection with Salmonella can result in the organism getting into the bloodstream and producing more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis.
