Update on the FDA Investigating a Multistate Outbreak of Salmonella Carrau Linked to Pre-cut Melon

On April 24 the FDA and CDC updated their investigation of Salmonella Carrau illnesses linked to pre-cut melon products. The contaminated products include cantaloupe, honeydew, or watermelon, or maybe mixes of some or all of these melons and other pre-cut fruit. On April 12, 2019, Caito Foods, LLC, of Indianapolis, Ind., recalled products containing pre-cut melons because they are potentially contaminated with Salmonella. Additionally, Caito Foods, LLC temporarily suspended producing and distributing these products. Salmonella Carrau is a rare type of Salmonella but has been historically seen in imported melons. Reports from Caito Foods, LLC indicate that imported melons were used in the suspect pre-cut melon products. The products were packaged in clear, plastic clamshell containers and distributed in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. The products were sold in Kroger, Target, Trader Joe, Walmart, and Amazon. @ https://www.fda.gov/Food/RecallsOutbreaksEmergencies/Outbreaks/ucm635949.htm?utm_campaign=Outbreak%20Salmonella%20Carrau%20Pre-cut%20Melons&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Eloqua
