"Upon learning that this outbreak is likely linked to pre-cut melon from a Caito Foods' facility in IN, the FDA began working with the company and retailers to promptly recall the product and prevent further exposure to consumers", said FDA Deputy Commissioner for Food Policy and Response Frank Yiannas.

Indiana's Caito Foods is voluntarily recalling fresh cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe and fresh cut mixed fruit containing one of these melons.

Eyewitness News previously reported that the recall affected Kansas stores but Dillons spokesperson Sheila Lowrie said Wichita area stores are not impacted by the recall.

The fruit was sold at WalMart, Kroger, Target, Amazon/Whole Foods and Trader Joe's.

Authorities say 93 people have been sickened, 23 of whom were hospitalized.

I just got a little too comfortable, made a pass to the middle and just didn't expect Muzzin to step up and hit me. Skill is a wonderful thing; will is more important at this time of year and determination".

Health officials advise consumers to check packaging to determine if the melon was distributed by Caito Foods, and, if so, not to eat it.

So far, cases have cropped up in nine states: Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin. No deaths have been reported.

These products have the potential to be contaminated with Salmonella Carrau, "an organism which can cause serious and sometimes fatal infections in young children, frail or elderly people, and others with weakened immune systems", said the FDA.

Healthy persons infected with Salmonella often experience fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain.
