CDC: 200+ Cases Of Infections Following Parasites In Del Monte Vegetables

The FDA is investigating a multi-state outbreak of an intestinal infection that has resulted in "frequent, sometimes explosive, bowel movements" and has been linked to consumption of produce contained within Del Monte vegetables trays.

Cyclospora cayetanensis, the CDC noted, is a "single-celled parasite that causes an intestinal infection called cyclosporiasis". They were sold at Kwik Trip, Kwik Star, Demond's, Sentry, Potash, Meehan's, Country Market, FoodMax Supermarket, and Peapod stores in Michigan, Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said in a prior update.

FDA, CDC, state, and local partners are now investigating several Cyclospora illnesses associated with recalled Del Monte 6oz and 12oz vegetable trays containing broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and dill dip that were sold by Kwik Trip/Kwik Star locations in IA, IN, MI, MN, and WI.


The recall affected Del Monte six and 12-ounce vegetable trays containing broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and dill dip that were distributed to Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. The affected trays also have a best if enjoyed by date of June 17th of 2018.Seven people have been hospitalized after eating the food thus far. As many as 54 cases have also been reported in Minnesota, along with a handful in Iowa and MI.

The states with reported victims are Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and MI, according to the CDC, with seven people hospitalized so far. People infected may also experience loss of appetite, weight loss, stomach cramps or pain, nausea, gas and fatigue. They range in age from 13 to 79 years old. Without treatment, the infection can last from as little as a few days to more than a month. Some people who are infected with Cyclospora do not have any symptoms. However, anyone who purchased these trays before the recall should immediately throw them away and clean and disinfect anything they came into contact with. FDA is now reviewing distribution and supplier information related to the vegetable trays; the investigation is ongoing.
