SPRING­FIELD, Ill. — Health of­fi­cials said a sal­monella out­break linked to pre-cut melon has sick­ened 60 peo­ple in five Mid­west­ern states.

The Cen­ters for Dis­ease Con­trol and Preven­tion says Caito Foods LLC on Fri­day re­called pre-cut water­melon, hon­ey­dew melon, can­taloupe and fruit med­leys con­tain­ing at least one of those mel­ons that were pro­duced at its fa­cil­ity in In­di­anapo­lis.

It said the five states where peo­ple were sick­ened are Illi­nois, In­di­ana, Michi­gan, Mis­souri and Ohio. The CDC said the fruit was also dis­trib­uted to stores in Ge­or­gia, Ken­tucky and North Carolina. It was sold in clear plas­tic clamshell con­tain­ers at Costco, Jay C, Kroger, Pay­less, Owen’s, Sprouts, Trader Joe’s, Wal­greens, Wal­mart and Whole Foods/Ama­zon.

The CDC said 31 of the peo­ple sick­ened have been hos­pi­tal­ized, but no deaths have been re­ported.
