    Cut-Up Melons Sicken Dozens in Salmonella Outbreak

    At least 60 people have been sickened and dozens have been hospitalized with salmonella after tainted pre-cut melons were distributed to stores such as Walmart, Kroger, Costco and Whole Foods in several states, federal officials said.
    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention traced the outbreak to a Caito Foods facility in Indiana. The company has since issued a recall notice in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina and Ohio removing clear plastic containers of watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe and mixed melons from the shelves.
    The recall affected at least 10 large grocery chains, including Whole Foods.

    First of all I dont buy cut up anything from stores, they cut up fruit thats on the verge of being unsellable. Second I dont buy cut up stuff because you cant wash it properly.

    When I buy melons they go right in the sink and they are scrubbed with a patato fruit scrubber and dried before I cut them
    Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

    GROUCHO MARX,
