Pre-cut melon sold at Whole Foods, Kroger, Target, Walmart, Trader Joe’s and other stores has been voluntarily recalled due to the possibility of salmonella contamination.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the FDA made the announcement Friday.
The recalled products include precut watermelon, honeydew melon and cantaloupe.
They were packaged in clear, plastic clamshell containers and sold under various brands.
If you think you may have the fruit in your refrigerator, the FDA says do not eat it.
You should throw it away.
Nearly 100 people from nine states have gotten sick in a salmonella outbreak.
Symptoms of salmonella usually began 12 to 72 hours after consuming the bacteria.
The symptoms include diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps.
