Currently, the outbreak is limited to five states in the Midwest, with 32 of the 60 cases in MI. So far, 60 people infected with the outbreak strain have been reported in five states, including 32 cases in MI.

The CDC said Walmart and Kroger stores in the affected states had removed pre-cut melon linked to the outbreak from their shelves.

The CDC said on Friday that 124 people have been sickened in 36 states after contact with live poultry, such as chicks and ducklings in backyard flocks.

If you're an OH resident and purchased pre-cut melon from Walmart, or don't remember where you bought the pre-cut melon, throw it away. Illnesses started on dates ranging from April 30, 2018 to May 28, 2018, and cases range in age from less than 1 to 97 years old.

Investors are also concerned about the future of the North American Free Trade Agreement, which Trump has threatened to terminate. The official described Merkel's suggestion as a "shared assessment and dialogue" mechanism, but gave no further details.

Of the 60 people reported sick, 31 have been hospitalized due to illness associated with the infection.

Salmonella can develop 12 to 72 hours after eating the contaminated food and usually lasts four to seven days.

The people who took ill came from IL (6), IN (11), MI (32), Missouri (10), and OH (1), the agency said. Individuals who believe they may have become ill with Salmonella should contact their health care provider. The list of states and stores could expand depending on the investigation. The CDC indicated that pre-cut melons, including fruit salads, are a likely source of this multistate outbreak.

This investigation is expanding rapidly.
