- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating a multi-state Salmonella outbreak linked to contact with live poultry.

People who reportedly fell ill, obtained their chicks and ducklings from several sources, including feed supply stores, websites, hatcheries and from relatives, the agency said. Other states that have reported illnesses as part of this outbreak include IL (6 cases), IN (11 cases), Missouri (10 cases), and OH (1 case). All of them reported eating pre-cut cantaloupe, watermelon, or a fruit salad mix with one or both of them.

It's also important to remember food safety measures if you buy whole melons.

The salmonella cases in IN and MI were traced to melon purchased at Kroger, Jay C and Payless grocers.

The CDC said Walmart and Kroger stores in the affected states had removed pre-cut melon linked to the outbreak from their shelves.

Walmart settled lawsuits in 2014 with the families of some of the 33 people who died of listeria infections traced to cantaloupes from Colorado that the retailer sold. Illnesses starts on dates ranging from April 30 to May 28. Symptoms of salmonella include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps 12 to 72 hours after being exposed to the bacteria. The list of states and stores could expand depending on the investigation. The illness usually lasts four to seven days, and most people recover without treatment.

Elderly people, infants and anyone with weak immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness. Individuals who believe they may have become ill with Salmonella should contact their health care provider.
