CNN, (WILX) - Nearly 100 people from nine states have gotten sick in a salmonella outbreak.

Now pre-cut melon sold at Whole Foods, Kroger, Target, Walmart, Trader Joes, and other stores has been voluntarily recalled due to the possibility of salmonella contamination.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Food and Drug Administration made the announcement Friday.

The recalled products include pre-cut watermelon, honeydew melon, and cantaloupe.

They were packaged in clear, plastic clamshell containers and sold under various brands.

If you think you may have some, the FDA says don't eat it and throw it away.

Symptoms of salmonella include diarrhea, fever, and stomach cramps, and usually begin 12 to 72 hours after consuming the bacteria.
