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.

Attorney Ryan Osterholm, who is representing the man in this Del Monte lawsuit, said, “the plaintiff is a business owner and has lost income as a result of this completely preventable illness. Ready-to-eat products such as the Del Monte vegetable trays that were allegedly contaminated with cyclospora bacteria pose a particular threat because the product does not undergo a kill step before someone consumes it; the consumer does not heat or cook this product. We are representing many clients in these Del Monte lawsuits.”

Lawyer Lindsay Lien Rinholen, also representing the client and others, said, ““Cyclospora, a parasite, can cause debilitating, relentless diarrhea for weeks or even months before it is diagnosed—destroying the quality of life of those who get sick.”

This outback has sickened 78 people in four states. Wisconsin is the hardest-hit state, with at least 50 people sick. Minnesota is the next hardest hit, with at least 23 people sick. If you have eaten Del Monte vegetable trays and have been ill with the symptoms of cyclospora, please see your doctor.
