TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - Kroger has announced a melon recall that will impact customers in Indiana and Michigan.

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

They are pulling them due to a possible contamination from a strain of Salmonella Adelaide.

Kroger said on Thursday the CDC and the FDA notified them that multiple illnesses have been reported in connection with this outbreak.

They say the reported illnesses ended on May 28th, and the shelf life on the melons are very limited, but they decided to pull the items out of an abundance of caution.

If you've bought one of these items, Kroger officials say you should not eat them and return them to the store for a full refund or replacement. 

Customers who have questions may contact Kroger at 1-800-KROGERS.
