Pregnant women, infants and the elderly are being warned not to eat rockmelon amid fears of a possible salmonella outbreak.

Food Standards Australia said state and territory authorities were investigating cases of salmonella possibly associated with the fruit following an increase in infections.

"While we wait for further information, the best advice is that consumers, especially infants, the elderly, pregnant women or people with compromised immune systems, should not consume rockmelon," it said in a statement on Tuesday.
