FDA Investigating Multistate Outbreak of Salmonella Adelaide Infections Linked to Pre-Cut Melons
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration, along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state and local partners, are investigating a multistate outbreak of Salmonella Adelaide illnesses that may be linked to cut melons.
The FDA is sharing additional distribution information that identifies retail locations that may have received potentially contaminated product subject to the recall. The FDA is advising consumers to discard any recalled products purchased at the listed locations.
The FDA is sharing a consolidated list of retail locations with consumers as the information becomes available. The retail information augments product information released on June 8th. Additional retail locations may be added as more information is received by the FDA. This list is organized by state and has been compiled from information firms have reported to FDA that received recalled product. Firms may be added or removed as more information becomes available. Therefore, it is important that you use the product-specific identification information, in addition to this list of retail stores, to evaluate products in your possession to see if they have been recalled. Consumers may wish to ask a retailer directly if the recalled product was available for sale.
