Attorney Fred Pritzker

Attorney Fred Pritzker, who is representing clients sickened in this cyclospora outbreak, said, “Many patients are sick for weeks or months, accumulate large medical bills, and are forced to miss work.” Call 1-888-377-8900 or 612-338-0202 to talk to Fred.

Attorney Fred Pritzker, who is representing clients sickened in this outbreak, said, “This outbreak has made many people in Minnesota and Wisconsin very sick. Cyclosporiasis is an illness that can last for months, especially if the patient is allergic to sulfa drugs. No one should get sick just because they decided to eat fresh vegetables.”

Trisha Robinson, an epidemiologist supervisor with the Minnesota Department of Health said, “We do not have any indication at this time that the two outbreaks are related. Besides these outbreak cases, there are other cases of cyclosporiasis that do not appear to be related to either of these outbreaks, which is not unexpected for this time of year. We typically see increases in Cyclospora infections from May through August.”

The symptoms of cyclosporiasis include diarrhea that is explosive and watery, loss of appetite, weight loss, stomach cramps, nausea, and fatigue. If you ate Kwik Trip Del Monte Vegetable Trays and have been experiencing these symptoms, see your doctor for help.
