These illnesses are associated with recalled Del Monte 6 ounce and 12 ounce vegetable trays containing broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, and dill dip sold by Kwik Trip/Kwik Star locations in Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Del Monte is also recalling “small veggie trays” that are 28 ounces and include broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery, and dill dip and were sold in Illinois and Indiana.

FDA hasn’t identified which of these ingredients are contaminated with the one celled parasite. Officials are reviewing distributor and supplier information and the investigation is ongoing.
