MI is part of a multistate outbreak of Salmonella.

There is only one reported case related to this outbreak in OH thus far.

Michigan's Department of Agriculture and Department of Health and Human Services have issued a warning about a salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon.

So far all the illnesses in Missouri have been traced to melon purchased at Walmart stores, but the CDC said the investigation is ongoing and the alert may expand to include other chains.

The departments are urging anyone who purchased pre-cut melon at either Walmart or Kroger to throw it away. Walmart and Kroger are cooperating fully with the investigation and have removed all cut melon associated with this outbreak.
