Wisconsin Hit Hard in Cyclospora Del Monte Outbreak; Lawyer Explains

Noted food safety attorney Fred Pritzker, who is representing many clients in this outbreak, said, “This outbreak will likely grow simply because there were so many of these products sold. And there is a time difference between when a person starts fo feel sick, they go to a doctor, are diagnosed (which can take some time since tests for this illness are not routine), and the illness is reported to public health officials.”

The main symptom of cyclosporiasis include explosive and watery diarrhea that can last for weeks or months. Other symptoms include appetite loss, weight loss, increased gas, nausea, fatigue, stomach cramps and pain, and bloating. Some people experience symptoms similar to the flu, including vomiting, headache, fever, and body aches.

If you ate recalled Del Monte Vegetable Trays purchased from Kwik Trip, Kwik Star, Demond’s, Sentry, Potash, Meehan’s, Country Market, FoodMax Supermarket, and Peapod in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin and have been sick with these symptoms, see your doctor. Treament is available for this infection. Without it, you could be ill for months. And since the treatment is sulfa-based, anyone allergic to that compound could have a longer recovery time.
