The patient case count by state is: Iowa (4), Michigan (2), Minnesota (32), and Wisconsin (106). The illness onset date range is from May 14, 2018 to June 8, 2018. The patient age range is from 20 to 79 years.

This product was recalled on June 8, 2018. The product sizes are 6 ounce, 12 ounce, and 28 ounce. The best by dates for all of these products was June 17, 2018, but consumers may still have some of the vegetable trays in their homes.

The trays were distributed to these stores: Kwik Trip, Kwik Star, Demond’s, Sentry, Potash, Meehan’s, Country Market, FoodMax Supermarket and Peapod, in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. This outbreak will most likely grow, and it has more than doubled in size in just the past few weeks.

Attorney Fred Pritkzer, who is representing clients sickened in this otubeark and has filed several lawsuits, said, “Heat will kill this parasite, but these vegetable trays are ready-to-eat products. That means anyone who ate this product could contract this parasitic infection.

“Hospitalizations for cyclospora infections are fairly rare,” Fred added. “These people are very sick through no fault of their own. Medical bills are accumulating quickly, and many of these patients cannot work because of the horrible symptoms this infection causes.”

The symptoms of cyclosporiasis include diarrhea that is unpredictable, frequent, explosive, and watery, weight loss, increased gas, severe abdominal cramps, and nausea. Anyone who is experiencing these symptoms should see their doctor.
