Illinois & Wisconsin Affected By Massive Fresh Cut Fruit Recall
Look out for these fresh-cut fruits sold at Target and Walmart in Ilinois and Wisconsin.
More than 90 people have gotten sick after eating fresh-cut cantaloupe, honeydew, and watermelon. Both the FDA and CDC report the fruit may be contaminated with Salmonella Carrau. Albeit rare, symptoms include diarrhea, fever, and abdominal cramps. According to CBS Chicago, the fruit is produced and packaged by Caito Foods LLC and sold through five different stores in 16 different states, including Illinois and Wisconsin.
Health officials advise consumers to check packaging to determine if the melon was distributed by Caito Foods, and, if so, not to eat it. They advise stores to pull the products from shelves.
23 people (out of the 93 affected) were hospitalized. Read more here.
