The recalled products included fresh cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, and fresh-cut fruit medley products (which contain one of these melons).

At least 60 people have reported getting sick from a salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The items that could be contaminated were shipped between April 17 and June 7 and could still be on shelves in states where people have reported illnesses.

The agency recommends anyone with melon from these retailers or from the infected foods distributor throw them out immediately or return them where they were purchased for a refund.

The CDC, FDA, and public health and regulatory officials in several states are investigating an outbreak of Salmonella Adelaide infections in five Midwestern states.

The melon recall did not impact any Walgreens stores in North Carolina, according to a spokesperson. A lot of them bought the pre-cut melon from Kroger or Walmart stores.

Individuals who have consumed pre-cut melon and are experiencing symptoms of Salmonella infection should contact a healthcare provider. Until now there have been 60 illnesses and 31 hospitalizations.

Six people are sick in IL, 11 in IN, 32 in MI, 10 in Missouri and one in Ohio. Whole melon is still OK to eat, the CDC said.

So far only pre-cut melons have been linked, but it's important to remember food safety measures if you buy whole melons.
