3 Salmonella Cases in MN Linked to Cantaloupe
Three cases of salmonella in Minnesota are connected to cantaloupes from Indiana.
All three people ate the cantaloupe between July 18 and July 26. Two cases were in the metro area, and one was in greater Minnesota. All three people have recovered.
Salmonella infections result in diarrhea, fever and abdominal cramps and it usually lasts four to seven days. Health officials say most people recover without treatment, but severe infections can occur in infants, the elderly and those with weakened immune systems.
The Minnesota Department of Health is now working with other states and the FDA to figure out exactly where the affected cantaloupe was sold.
In the meantime health officials say to look at the sticker on the melon to avoid cantaloupe grown in Southwestern Indiana.
