INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– Kroger is recalling pre-cut cantaloupe, watermelon and melon mixes sold in Indiana and Michigan stores due to possible salmonella contamination.
The company was informed by the CDC and FDA on June 7 that several people have fallen ill in connection with the outbreak. The products were limited to select Kroger, Jay C, Owen’s and Pay Less stores and were provided by a third-party supplier.
Kroger said there have been no further reports of illnesses since May 28 and the shelf life of the produces are very limited, but wanted to issue the recall out of “an abundance of caution.”
The recall doesn’t impact other pre-cut fruit.
