The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning people about melons in 25 states -- including Alabama -- that may contain salmonella.
Caito Foods LLC is recalling fruit salad mixes that contain pre-cut melons. The mixes were sold under several different brands in Alabama and Tennessee at Costco, Kroger, Sprout's, Walgreens, Walmart and Whole Foods stores.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports 60 people in five midwestern states were reported sick during the month of May. In those cases, 31 people were hospitalized.
