An Indianapolis-based company has issued a recall for melon products sold in 16 states after being linked to a salmonella outbreak.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Friday that the recall includes cut watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe produced by Caito Foods LLC. The fruit has been sold under various brands or labels at Kroger, Walmart, Trader Joe's, Target and Whole Foods.

The affected states are Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, West Virginia 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.

Authorities say 93 people have been sickened, 23 of whom were hospitalized. No deaths have been reported.

Salmonella Carrau is described as rare. Symptoms include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps.                                                                                                                                                                                          https://wjactv.com/news/local/cut-melon-linked-to-us-salmonella-outbreak-recalled-04-13-2019-172646420

When buying fresh fruit or vegetables from any unknown source, including markets, make sure it is a completely unblemished melon or other fruit.  Rinse it in cold water and let dry.  Right before serving, spray it well with vinegar and wipe dry.  Rinse and dry again.  It's now ready to cut.  Unless the skin was broken to allow germs to get inside of the fruit, it should be safe to eat.

Romain lettuce (yuck), avocados(yuck) and now cut fruit. I haven't seen any warning about donuts. I will stick to eating them instead :D

Best, but actually you can use any kind of vinegar.  You can also soak it in a tub of vinegar and water, but I find it too much of a hassle to do that on a regular basis.  I should also say, that if you grew the food and know it wasn't compromised in the garden, then bring it in and gently wipe it off with a dry brush or cloth leaving the natural flora in place.  When you are ready to eat it, then wash it thoroughly and use it immediately.
