Nearly 150 Sickened in Cyclospora Outbreak Linked to Del Monte Vegetable Trays

U.S. health officials continue to investigate a multistate outbreak of the bacterium cyclospora cayetanensis associated with Del Monte vegetable trays, and the case count is up to at least 144 illnesses.

June 27, 2018 – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said it’s still working to determine which item in the Del Monte veggie trays — broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery sticks or dill dip — is the source of the outbreak, according to an update issued on Thursday.

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
