Salmonella is an bacteria that can potentially cause severe illness, including vomiting, fever, diarrhea and abdominal cramps between 12 and 72 hours after infection. While the illness can be serious, many people recover without the help of a doctor after four days to a week of being sick.

Last month, a salmonella outbreak in the USA caused the infection tens of people. Most people bought pre-cut melon at Walmart or Kroger stores in the Midwest.

The melon may be tainted with a risky strain of salmonella bacteria.
