The FDA, CDC, along with state and local officials are investigating a multi-state outbreak of SalmonellaAdelaide infections.

Only pre-cut melon is affected by the recall.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is recalling pre-cut melon and pre-made fruit salads with melon distributed to stores in eight states-Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio-because of potential salmonella bacteria contamination. Stores carrying the melon include Costco, Jay C, Kroger, Payless, Owen's, Sprouts, Trader Joe's, Walgreens, Walmart and Whole Foods/Amazon.

USA evacuates American diplomats from China amid concerns over mystery illness
In response, it downsized the US diplomatic staff in Havana and prohibited families from joining the diplomats who stayed. As a result of these unusual occurrences, the USA and Canada have both pulled diplomats out of Cuba.

Six people are sick in IL, 11 in IN, 32 in MI, 10 in Missouri and one in Ohio.

If you have purchased any fruit that may have been connected with the recall, the CDC is asking that you throw it away immediately. The CDC said that 60 people have reportedly been infected with a strain of Salmonella Adelaide, with 31 people hospitalized. Those sickened often develop diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated food. Whole melon is still OK to eat, the CDC said.

Health authorities have narrowed the source of a salmonella outbreak to a melon facility in Indianapolis. It only applies to pre-cut melon and fruit salad mixes containing melon. In rare cases, an infection can lead to death unless a patient receives prompt treatment with antibiotics.
