Del Monte Cyclospora Outbreak

The recalled Del Monte trays were sold in 6 ounce and 12 ounce sizes; they contained broccoli, carrots, cauliflower, and dill dip and were sold in Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Del Monte is also recalling “small veggie trays” in 28 ounce packages, which included broccoli, carrots, celery, cauliflower, and dill dip. The larger product was sold in Illinois and Indiana. The expiration of the trays was June 17, 2018. They were sold to 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 government has still not identified which ingredient or ingredients are contaminated with the parasite in this Del Monte cyclospora outbreak. And the FDA is still reviewing distribution and supplier information related to the trays.

Attorney Fred Pritzker

Attorney Fred Pritzker, who is representing clients sickened in this Del Monte cyclospora outbreak said, “This infection can last for a month or longer and can recur if a patient isn’t treated.” Call 1-888-377-8900 or 612-338-0202.

“This outbreak has grown by leaps and bounds,” Fred Pritzker, a food safety attorney who is representing many people sickened by these products. “Originally just 17 people in Minnesota and Wisconsin were sickened. The outbreak may still grow, since it can take time for anyone who is sick to see a doctor and be diagnosed.”

If you purchased these products and have been ill with the symptoms of cyclosporiasis, see your doctor. The symptoms include stomach cramps and pain, fever, headache, bloating, loss of appetite, weight loss, nausea, vomiting, fatigue. The most common symptom of this infection is explosive and watery diarrhea. All 212 patients in this outbreak are lab-confirmed.
