Precut melon, which is associated with the Salmonella outbreak in the US, was recalled in Tennessee and Kentucky

In a salmonella outbreak with chopped melon almost 100 people have become ill.

A company based in Indianapolis has issued a recall for melon products, which were sold in 16 states after it was linked to the Salmonella outbreak.

The US Food and Drug Administration said on Friday the recall includes sliced ​​watermelons, honeydew and cantaloupe, which are manufactured by Caito Foods LLC. The fruits were sold under different brands or labels at Kroger, Walmart, Trader Joe, Target and Whole Foods.

The affected states include Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

Health officials advise consumers to check the packaging to see if the melon has been distributed by Caito Foods and may not eat it. They recommend shops to pull the products off the shelves.

Authorities say that 93 people fell ill, 23 of whom were hospitalized. No deaths were reported.

Salmonella Carrau is described as rare. Symptoms include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps.
