National food safety law firm Pritzker Hageman has filed a Cyclospora lawsuit in Wisconsin against Del Monte and Kwik Trip. The lawsuit is the third Pritzker Hageman has filed in connection with the multi-state Cyclospora outbreak linked to Del Monte vegetable trays sold at Kwik Trip and other stores.
Cyclospora Lawsuit Against Del Monte, Kwik Trip
The lawsuit was filed by Pritzker Hageman attorneys today in Wisconsin Circuit Court in Brown County on behalf of a Wisconsin man who is one of 78 people in four states sickened in this outbreak. Illnesses have been reported in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Michigan. At least four people became so sick they needed to be hospitalized.
According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff purchased two trays at a Kwik Trip store and, a few days after eating the vegetables, developed symptoms of a Cyclospora infection, which include diarrhea, abdominal cramps, nausea, and headaches.
