(CNN WFLA) – 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. 

A full list of the recalled products is available on the FDA website. 

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