More than 200 sickened in Del Monte vegetable outbreak

As it turns out, Lund is one of the reported 56 people in the state who fell sick with a Cyclospora infection, an intestinal parasite he got after eating Fresh Del Monte Produce vegetable trays he picked up at a nearby Kwik Trip.

Cyclospora cayetanensis, the CDC noted, is a "single-celled parasite that causes an intestinal infection called cyclosporiasis".

Over the weekend, the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control announced and began investigating the reported outbreak, caused by pre-packaged raw vegetables and dill-flavored dip. Recalls were issued in June for those four states as well as IL and Indiana.

The trays were sold at Kwik Trip, FoodMax, Country Market, Meehan's, Potash, Demond and Kwik Star.

The record audience watched as Iceland left with a draw against Argentina, one of the favorites of the World Cup. The company said it was "aware" of the incident and congratulated England on its win.

The CDC said on Thursday that the outbreak is linked to Del Monte 6-, 12-, and 28-ounce plastic clamshell vegetable trays.

So far, the outbreak has affected consumers in four states: Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Other common symptoms include loss of appetite, weight loss, stomach cramps/pain, bloating, increased gas, nausea, and fatigue. The company is also recalling these veggie trays in the state of Wisconsin, as well as 28 oz. veggie trays which include broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery and dill dip, which were distributed to IL and Indiana. If not treated, the illness may last from a few days to a month or longer.

FDA has not identified which of the ingredients is the vehicle for this outbreak; each component of these vegetable trays is under consideration.

What are the Symptoms of Cyclosporiasis? FDA is now reviewing distribution and supplier information related to the vegetable trays; the investigation is ongoing. However, anyone who purchased these trays before the recall should immediately throw them away and clean and disinfect anything they came into contact with.
