CDC recalls Del Monte vegetable trays

CDC Reports 212 Confirmed Cases of Cyclospora in Midwest

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported there were 212 cases of the infection, cyclosporiasis, in Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. On June 15 Del Monte recalled 28-ounce trays.

Will the Del Monte Cyclospora outbreak that has sickened at least 212 people, mostly in Minnesota and Wisconsin this summer, continue to grow? As per a statement issued by the Food and Drug Administration, two cases reported in MI had bought the tray in Wisconsin and so, MI as such does not have an impact from this cyclosporiasis outbreak. Other symptoms include loss of appetite, weight loss, stomach cramps/pain, bloating, increased gas, nausea, and fatigue, as well as possible vomiting, body aches, headache, fever, and other flu-like symptoms.

IN and IL, along with the another four states, have also been warned about the outbreak, since some of the Del Monte products that included vegetables that appear on the list of affected produce, were for sale in sales during June.

Symptoms typically show up a week after the food was consumed. Without treatment, the infection can last from as little as a few days to more than a month.
