Two people have died in Minnesota as the state currently has the highest number of salmonella cases linked to cantaloupe nationwide, according to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Minnesota has reported 13 sick people, with health officials saying the actual number could be much higher as many cases have likely gone unreported.

“If we’ve heard of a couple of cases, there’s probably going to be a lot more,” Kirk Hughes of Minnesota Poison Control told Fox 9 Minneapolis.

Hughes stated that they have not received any calls that they believe are linked to the Salmonella outbreak, but they are working with the Minnesota Department of Health to identify and track any future cases.

“It's very important that if you have consumed cantaloupe in that time period – six hours to six days – that you report it,” said Hughes. “We want to get these cases in, so we can start accurately tracking.”

Hughes added that it is important that anyone with stomach cramping, diarrhea, nausea, or fever report to health officials if they have consumed cantaloupe within six hours to a week of getting symptoms.
