Del Monte 'small veggie trays' result in 212 confirmed parasite cases

CDC Reports 212 Confirmed Cases of Cyclospora in Midwest

As of this week, 212 people have contracted cyclosporiasis after reportedly consuming Del Monte vegetable trays, the Centers for Disease Control announced. Seven of these people have been hospitalized and no deaths have been reported. So far, the age range for those sickened is 13 to 79 years old.

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

Lab tests have confirmed more than two dozen additional people who ate items from Del Monte pre-cut vegetable trays are infected with Cyclospora parasites.

The FDA is now investigating the outbreak of cyclosporiasis, related to the Del Monte products. People infected may also experience loss of appetite, weight loss, stomach cramps or pain, nausea, gas and fatigue. Vomiting, body aches, headache, fever, and other flu-like symptoms may also occur.

A previous major cyclosporiasis outbreak was reported in 2015, when 546 individuals were infected across 31 states. Some people who are infected with Cyclospora do not have any symptoms. If not treated, the illness may last from a few days to a month or longer.

Cyclosporiasis is an infection in the intestines caused by the cyclospora parasite. However, illnesses that began after May 24 might not have been reported yet because of the time it takes between when a person becomes ill and when the illness is reported, according to the CDC.

'Therefore, it is unlikely that cyclosporiasis is passed directly from one person to another'. On June 15 Del Monte recalled 28-ounce trays.

The recalled products were sold in clear, plastic clamshell containers. They were sold at Kwik Trip, Kwik Star, Demond's, Sentry, Potash, Meehan's, Country Market, FoodMax Supermarket, and Peapod stores in Michigan, Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said in a prior update.

'Most people reported buying the trays at Kwik Trip convenience stores, ' the CDC said. Two cases were from vegetables bought in another state but consumed in MI.

There is an ongoing investigation into the matter, the agency said.

As of July 5, 2018, CDC has reported 212 laboratory-confirmed cases of cyclosporiasis in persons from IA, MN, WI and MI who reportedly consumed the vegetable trays.
