The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is reporting 60 cases of Salmonella in five states including IL.

Of the 60 people reported sick, 31 have been hospitalized due to illness associated with the infection. 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).

On Friday, the grocery chain said they would be removing pre-cut cantaloupe, pre-cut watermelon, and pre-cut melon mixes.

The CDC is not recommending that people avoid whole melons.

Sanders also said it was the Eagles who backed out. "We're very proud of her, she's done a fantastic job as First Lady". The White House released a statement on Monday banning the Eagles from participating in the traditional visit.

Most of the 60 people who have been infected with the strain of salmonella purchased pre-cut melon from either a Walmart or Kroger store, according to a release. The CDC said it is working to identify a common supplier that might be the original source.

"The Illinois Department of Public Health is urging people not to eat pre-cut melon purchased from any Walmart store in Illinois, or any of the other affected states, at this time", said IDPH Director Nirav D. Shah, M.D., J.D. Walmart and Kroger removed all pre-cut melon from the states where cases occurred.

Salmonella can develop 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated food and usually lasts four to seven days. The list of states and stores could expand depending on the investigation. In rare cases, salmonella infection can cause death when a person is not treated promptly with antibiotics.

This investigation is expanding rapidly.
