Multistate Outbreak of Cyclospora illnesses linked to Del Monte Vegetable Trays

Illness due to Cyclospora linked to Del Monte vegetable trays is being investigated by the FDA, CDC, state, and local partners. The trays contain broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and dill dip that were sold by Kwik Trip/Kwik Star locations in IA, IN, MI, MN, and WI. “Small veggie trays,” which include broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery and dill dip that were distributed to Illinois and Indiana are also being recalled. CDC reports 78 laboratory-confirmed cases of cyclosporiasis in persons from IA, MN, WI and MI who reportedly consumed the vegetable trays. The two cases from Michigan reportedly purchased the vegetable tray in Wisconsin and therefore Michigan is not impacted from this outbreak. According to Del Monte, the recalled products were distributed to: Kwik Trip, Kwik Star, Demond’s, Sentry, Potash, Meehan’s, Country Market, FoodMax Supermarket and Peapod in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. The vehicle of the outbreak has not been identified. @ https://www.fda.gov/Food/RecallsOutbreaksEmergencies/Outbreaks/ucm610982.htm" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer" target="_blank">https://www.fda.gov/Food/RecallsOutbreaksEmergencies/Outbreaks/ucm610982.htm
