The Cyclospora Outbreak linked to Del Monte Vegetable Trays sold at Kwik Trip has ended after sickening 250 people in four states, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Dozens of lawsuits have been filed on behalf of clients who suffered debilitating symptoms, Cylospora Lawyer Ryan Osterholm says.
“We filed the first lawsuits in Minnesota and Wisconsin for people sickened in this outbreak and are representing dozens of clients,” said Osterholm.
The outbreak, which was announced by the CDC on June 15, was linked to Del Monte pre-packaged vegetable trays containing broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and dill dip. They were sold at Kwik Trip, Kwik Star, Demond’s, Sentry, Potash, Meehan’s, Country Market, FoodMax Supermarket and Peapod in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin.
A recall for the vegetable trays was issued on June 15, 2018.
Illnesses were reported in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan with onest-of-illness dates ranging from May 14, 2018, to June 20, 2018. Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) evaluated and reviewed the distribution and supplier information for each component of the recalled vegetable trays, they were not able to determine the specific vegetable that was the likely vehicle of infection.
