A new salmonella outbreak is linked to pre-cut melons sold at Illinois Walmart stores. The CDC said it is working to identify a common supplier that might be the original source.

The outbreak is believed linked to pre-cut melons, including fruit salad mixes with melon, sold at Walmart and Kroger stores. Those cases range in age from 23 to 87 years and have been reported in all regions of the state, the Illinois Dept of Public Health said.

Officials say the IL salmonella cases linked to pre-cut melon affected people ages 23 to 87. Signs of illness typically occur within 12 to 72 hours and last for four to seven days. It only applies to pre-cut melon and fruit salad mixes containing melon. They include cramps, fever and diarrhea and while most healthy people can recover without seeking medical care, babies, the elderly and those with compromised immune systems may suffer from a more severe form of illness, the release said. As the investigation continues, additional grocery stores may be added.

Salmonellosis is caused by the salmonella bacteria.
