Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development supervisors say 32 people in Michigan have become ill because of the outbreak.

On Friday, the grocery chain said they would be removing pre-cut cantaloupe, pre-cut watermelon, and pre-cut melon mixes.

There have been 60 people infected with the outbreak strain reported in five states, including 32 cases in MI.

People who reportedly fell ill, obtained their chicks and ducklings from several sources, including feed supply stores, websites, hatcheries and from relatives, the agency said.

North Carolina has had the most reported cases with 17, followed by Louisiana with 8 and 7 in Michigan, Minnesota and Oklahoma. Illnesses have also been reported in Illinois, Missouri and Ohio.

The outbreak has been connected to pre-cut melon purchased at any Illinois Walmart.

To date, 60 people infected with the outbreak strain have been reported in five states, including 32 cases in MI.

The outbreak includes Indiana, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio. Illnesses starts on dates ranging from April 30 to May 28. Symptoms include diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps.

Elderly people, infants and anyone with weak immune systems are more likely to have a severe illness.

"This investigation is moving rapidly". In rare cases, salmonella infection can cause death when a person is not treated promptly with antibiotics.
