Eleven people in Wisconsin and three people in Minnesota are sick. They reported purchasing a vegetable tray from a Kwik Trip location before they got sick. The trays contained broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and dill dip. They may have also been available at other locations.

Consumers should not eat these products: Del Monte Vegetable Tray (containing broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and dill dip) in 6 ounce packages, and Del Monte Vegetable Tray (containing broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and dill dip) in 12 ounce packages. Kwok Trip is cooperating with officials and have removed this product from their stores.

Cyclospora is a parasite that is usually found in developing countries. But in the summer months, there is almost always a cylospora outbreak in the U.S. Past outbreaks have been linked to snow peas, cilantro, raspberries, and mesclun.

The symptoms of cyclosporiasis include frequent watery and explosive diarrhea, loss of appetite and weight, cramping, blasting, and increased gas, nausea, fatigue, body aches, and low grade fever. If you have these symptoms, see a health care provider.

Cyclosporiasis can last for months. The symptoms can be very unpredictable and can disrupt patient’s lives. ┬áThere is treatment for this illness, but it is sulfa based. So any patients with a sulfa allergy have no really effective treatment.

If you have purchased these Del Monte Deli Trays, do not eat them. Throw them away in a sealed container, or take them back to the place of purchase for a refund.
