Illnesses from the fruit were reported in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri and Ohio.

The Kroger Co. and Walmart are among grocery retailers that have removed fresh-cut melon products from their stores in connection with a multistate outbreak of salmonella.

Caito Foods, LLC recalled its packages of pre-cut watermelon, honeydew melon, cantaloupe, and fresh-cut medley products containing these melons after people reported feeling ill after eating the fruits, the CDC said in a news release.

-Stores selling the pre-cut melon (with brand name if applicable): Walmart (Freshness Guaranteed); Whole Foods/Amazon (Whole Foods Market); Costco (Garden Highway); Kroger (generic label distributed by Renaissance Food Group); Walgreens (Delish); Trader Joe's (Trader Joe's); Jay C; Payless; Owen's; and Sprouts (Sprouts Farmers Market).

Caito Foods has seized production and distribution of the melons.

The FDA said it's working with the CDC to determine if the recalled products went to additional stores or states. Check out the full list of recalled products for UPC codes and SKUs to make sure you're not accidentally eating salmonella.

Health officials say a salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon has sickened 60 people in five Midwestern states. Most people bought pre-cut melon at Walmart or Kroger stores in the Midwest.

The FDA and U.S. Centers for Disease Control are investigating an outbreak linked to 60 illnesses and at least 31 hospitalizations in five states.

No deaths have been reported thus far.

In a tweet posted on Sunday, FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb urged consumers in the eight affected states to check the "fridge and freezer for recalled pre-cut melon linked to Salmonella outbreak".

"The potential that these products are contaminated with salmonella was discovered through analyzing reports made by state departments of public health", Indianapolis-based Caito Foods said in a statement.
