What’s the problem?
Cyclospora infections have been reported in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan, according to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). At least 6 people have been hospitalized, with onset dates range from May 14 to June 8.
FDA has been reviewing distribution and supplier info related to the contaminated veggie trays as it searches for answers into the outbreak.
FDA announced the recall on June 15 for 6-ounce, 12-ounce, and 28-ounce Del Monte vegetable trays, which were distributed to the following stores across the U.S.:
- Kwik Trip
- Kwik Star
- Country Market
- Food Max Supermarket
The recalled veggie trays feature “best by” dates of June 17 or earlier, FDA said.
Anyone who has eaten from from the recalled Del Monte vegetable trasys and developed symptoms of cyclospora food poisoning should seek immediate medical attention. Signs and symptoms of cyclosporiasis include:
- Loss of appetite
