Del Monte Cyclospora Outbreak Grows to 237 Sick in Four States; Lawsuits Filed

The Del Monte cyclospora outbreak has now sickened 237 people in just four states, according to the FDA.  Those patients live in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan. Seven patients have been hospitalized; no deaths have been reported. The two cases from Michigan reportedly bought the vegetable tray in Wisconsin.

Lawsuits have been filed in this outbreak, on behalf of people sickened after buying a Del Monte vegetable tray from several retail outlets. They were sold mostly in Kwik Trip/Kwik Star locations in Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. These trays were recalled in June 2018, and include 6 ounce, 12 ounce, and 28 ounce sizes that contain broccoli, cauliflower, celery, carrots, and dill dip.

These vegetable trays were sold in Kwik Trip, Kwik Star, Demond’s, Sentry, Potash, Meehan’s, Country Market, FoodMax Supermarket and Peapod stores in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. The trays all have a “best if enjoyed by” date of June 17, 2018 or earlier.

The case count in this outbreak by state is: Michigan (2), Iowa (7), Minnesota (56) and Wisconsin (172). There are many Kwik Trip and Kwik Star locations in Minnesota and Wisconsin, which may explain why there are so many people sick in those two states.

Lawyers at Pritzker Hageman have filed many lawsuits on behalf of clients sickened in this Del Monte cyclospora outbreak. Their clients have been sickened through no fault of their own; they simply purchased a vegetable tray from a local store. Attorney Ryan Osterholm, who is representing many clients, said, “This is a huge outbreak. This illness can last for months and can recur if not treated. And some people are allergic to the drugs used to treat it.”

Symptoms of this illness include frequent, watery, and explosive diarrhea, weight loss, abdominal cramps, and loss of appetite. If you ate a recalled Del Monte Vegetable tray and have been sick with these symptoms, you may be part of this Del Monte cyclospora outbreak.
