Salmonella outbreak leads to melon recall

(CBS 58) -- Pre-cut melons are being pulled from store shelves after the CDC says it's believed the fruit is connected to a salmonella outbreak. 

The CDC and the FDA say they have linked 93 illnesses to the melons produced by the Caito Foods Facility in Indianapolis. 

Caito Foods has temporarily suspended producing and distributing these products as the company and FDA continue their investigations.

The products were packaged in clear, plastic clamshell containers and sold at stores in nine states including Wisconsin. 

A full list of recalled products, including the brand, product label and retailer where sold, can be found here. 

Consumers should not consume the product and should promptly dispose of any remaining product.
