So far, 60 people infected with the outbreak strain have been reported in five states, including 32 cases in MI.

"Recalled products were distributed to Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, and OH", the CDC said.

The CDC says the outbreak is linked to pre-cut melon.

On Thursday, Walmart and Kroger removed pre-cut melon linked to this outbreak from all the stores in the affected states, the CDC reported.

Officials say the IL salmonella cases linked to pre-cut melon affected people ages 23 to 87.

People should not eat the recalled cut melon or fruit salad products, the CDC said. The list of states and stores could expand depending on the investigation. Symptoms include diarrhea and abdominal cramps and typically appear between 12 and 72 hours after infection. Some people could end up with severe diarrhea that requires a hospital trip. The illness usually lasts four to seven days, and most people recover without treatment.

"If you don't remember where you bought pre-cut melon, don't eat it and throw it away". Whole melons are not included. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is working to identify the source of Salmonella and anticipated more recalled to be issued as more information becomes available.

People who ate those pre-cut melon products began falling ill with the salmonella adelaide strain of the bacteria in late April, and hospitalization spiked two weeks later, with patients ranging from an infant to a 97-year-old. Sorry. We just want to make sure you don't get sick. Also make sure you've washed your hands and all utensilsknives and cutting boards, and don't let fresh fruits and vegetables come into contact with raw meat.

Salmonella is a very common cause of food poisoning.
