Del Monte Lawsuit Filed in Cyclospora Outbreak; Lawyer Explains

A Del Monte Lawsuit was filed in the cyclospora outbreak linked to vegetable trays sold at Kwik Trip locations and other stores across the Midwest by lawyers at Pritzker Hageman. Their client is a man from the Wisconsin Rapids area.

Del Monte lawsuit cyclospora

The plaintiff bought two Del Monte vegetable trays from a Kwik Trip in Green Bay, Wisconsin in late May 2018. He soon started suffering from nausea, stomach pain, headache, and diarrhea. His symptoms soon became debilitating. He sought help at an urgent care, but the testing was negative.

He went to a local emergency room, and was diagnosed with a cyclospora infection. He was prescribed an antibiotic, but is still suffering and will require medical care in the future.

The issue with this illness is that symptoms can seem to abate, but then can recur without warning. And most doctors do not order tests for this parasite because symptoms of cyclosporiasis mimic so many other illnesses. People can be disabled for months and some cannot leave their house.

Attorney Fred Pritzker, who has represented many clients sickened by this parasite, said, “No one should become seriously ill just because they purchased a healthy snack at a convenience store.”
