The FDA inspected that facility after the outbreak was announced.

Investigators Fail To Find Salmonella Source in Del Monte Vegetable Trays

Officials say that it is not likely that the trays the Wisconsin Department of Health Services warning against eating on May 21, 2019 are still on the market or in people’s homes.

Five people, living in Minnesota and Wisconsin, are sick in this outbreak. The last illness onset date was May 15, 2019. The first patient was reported ill on April 13, 2019.

If you did purchase a Del Monte vegetable tray from a Minnesota or Wisconsin Kwik Trip store in April 2019, make sure it’s no longer in your home. The recalled products are Del Monte Vegetable Trays (containing broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and dill dip) in 6 and 12 ounce sizes.

It’s a good idea to clean out your fridge with a mild bleach solution to kill any pathogens after you discard the tray. Wash the inside shelves and walls of the fridge, clean cutting boards and countertops, and surfaces that were used to serve or store these potentially contaminated vegetable trays. Wash your hands with soap and water after cleaning and after handling these products.

The symptoms of a Salmonella infection include a fever, nausea, chills, abdominal cramps, vomiting, and diarrhea that may be bloody. Symptoms usually start 12 to 72 hours after a person eats something contaminated with the pathogen. The illnesses usually lasts a few days up to a week. Most people recover on their own, but the long term complications of this infection can include reactive arthritis and high blood pressure.
