Vegetable trays recalled for cyclospora
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services, the Minnesota Department of Health and local health departments are investigating an increase of cyclospora infections. As of June 8, 11 ill patients in Wisconsin and three in Minnesota have reported purchasing a vegetable tray from a Wisconsin or Minnesota Kwik Trip location prior to their illness. The Del Monte vegetable trays sold at Kwik Trip contained broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and dill dip and may have been available at other retail locations. The health departments said further details on distribution are pending and that consumers should not eat the following products:
- Del Monte vegetable tray containing broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and dill dip – 6 oz.
- Del Monte vegetable tray containing broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and dill dip – 12 oz.
Kwik Trip is cooperating with state officials and voluntarily removed this product from their stores.
The agencies are continuing to conduct interviews with individuals who test positive for cyclospora. Consumers who contract cyclospora are also encouraged to contact their local health departments.
