A Salmonella outbreak linked to Del Monte vegetable trays sold at Kwik Trip stores in Minnesota and Wisconsin has sickened four people. But that number is likely to rise, Salmonella Attorney Ryan Osterholm told Fox 9 News last night.
Osterholm is part of a team of attorneys at the noted food safety law firm Pritzker Hageman that is representing more than 100 people who got parasitic infections after eating the same kind of Del Monte product last year. The vegetable trays, contaminated with the parasite Cyclospora, sickened 250 people in four states.
In both outbreaks, the vegetable trays packaged in plastic containers containing broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and dill dip, were sold at Kwik Trip stores.
Del Monte Vegetable Tray Salmonella Outbreak
In this outbreak, illnesses were reported between April 13 and April 27, 2019. Kwik Trip told Fox 9 News that it has removed the product from its shelves. However, health officials say other stores may also have received the product. And because a recall for the vegetable trays has not been issued they are advising consumers to keep an eye out and avoid eating products associated with this outbreak, Del Monte vegetable trays, sold in 6 oz and 12 oz sizes, that contain broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and dill dip.
Symptoms of a Salmonella infection include diarrhea, fever, abdominal cramps and vomiting. These symptoms usually occur within six to 72 hours of exposure and last about a week.
