CDC Reports 212 Confirmed Cases of Cyclospora in Midwest

It is unknown which product in the vegetable tray was the cause for the illness.

This parasite, when it contaminates food or water and is then ingested, can cause an intestinal illness called cyclosporiasis. The trays were purchased at various retailers including Kwik Trip or Kwik Star convenience stores.

Multiple U.S. government agencies are investigating illnesses associated with hundreds of Del Monte vegetable trays sold in some states in the Midwest, officials said.

Still, products distributed to each of the four states, as well as IL and IN, have been recalled.

The parasite that causes this intestinal illness was found in 6 oz., 12 oz. and 28 oz. vegetable trays containing fresh broccoli, cauliflower, celery sticks, carrots and dill dip sold to select retailers in the above-mentioned states, as well as in IL and Indiana.

Most people infected with Cyclospora develop diarrhea, with frequent, sometimes explosive, bowel movements. Seven people were hospitalized but no deaths have been reported. They range in age from 13 to 79 years old. As many as 54 cases have also been reported in Minnesota, along with a handful in Iowa and MI.

The vegetable trays were recalled in June, but on Thursday the CDC confirmed 212 cases have cropped up so far. People infected may also experience loss of appetite, weight loss, stomach cramps or pain, nausea, gas and fatigue.

The FDA has not yet identified ingredients linked to the outbreak, saying only that each component is under investigation. If not treated, these symptoms may last up to a month or longer. The FDA is now reviewing distribution and supplier information related to the vegetable trays, as well, in its ongoing investigation.

'Consumers who believe that they are in possession of any of the above products affected by this recall should dispose of the product in an appropriate waste container, ' the FDA said.
