Del Monte's Vegetable Tray Recall Affecting Retailers In Six States

JUNE 18, 2018

Del Monte Fresh Produce N.A. Inc. announced a voluntary recall of a limited quantity of six-, 12- and 28-ounce vegetable trays containing fresh broccoli, cauliflower, celery sticks, carrots and dill dip sold to select retailers in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.

The Centers for Disease Control has reported 78 laboratory-confirmed cases of cyclosporiasis in persons who reportedly consumed vegetable trays.

Del Monte was notified by state agencies of a Cyclospora outbreak and the company's potential involvement. It has recalled the products because they may be linked to the recent cluster of illnesses and have the potential to be contaminated with Cyclospora, a parasite that can cause the intestinal illness Cyclosporiasis.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, the infection usually is not life-threatening. Symptoms of Cyclosporiasis may include the following: watery diarrhea (most common), loss of appetite, weight loss, cramping, bloating, increased gas, nausea and fatigue. Other symptoms that may occur but are less common include vomiting and low-grade fever.

The recalled products were distributed to Kwik Trip, Kwik Star, Demond's, Sentry, Potash, Meehan's, Country Market, Food Max Supermarket and Peapod in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin and have "Best If Enjoyed By" date of June 17 or earlier.

The recalled products were distributed for sale in clear plastic containers with these labels and markings.
