The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is inspecting Del Monte’s facility in Kankakee, IL after the second food poisoning outbreak in 12 months has been linked to vegetables produced there. Yesterday, Wisconson health officials announced a Salmonella outbreak linked to Del Monte vegetable trays sold at Kwik Trip stores in Minnesota and Wisconsin had sickened four people. The vegetable trays, which contain broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and dill dip, were linked to a Cyclospora outbreak in 2018 that sickened 250 people.
The Pritzker Hageman legal team is representing 120 people sickened in the Cyclospora outbreak. The people sickened in this outbreak reported their illnesses between April 13 and April 27, 2019.
During both outbreaks, the contaminated vegetable trays were sold at Kwik Trip stores. But Wisconsin health officials say other stores also may have sold them. They are advising that consumers not eat the Del Monte Vegetable Trays, sold in 6 oz and 12 oz sizes, containing broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and dill dip.
