A recall was issued on 15 June 2018 for trays with a "Best if used by" date of 17 June which were sold at Kwik Trip, Kwik Star, Demond's, Sentry, Potash, Meehan's, Country Market, FoodMax Supermarket, and Peapod stores in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana and MI.

More than 200 people have now been infected by an outbreak of parasites linked to recalled vegetable trays from Del Monte.

In its June 15, 28 and 28 outbreak statements the CDC reported the victims were "people who reportedly consumed" pre-packaged Del Monte Fresh Produce vegetable trays containing broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and dill dip. As many as 54 cases have also been reported in Minnesota, along with a handful in Iowa and MI. Still, no matter where you live, if you have their veggies in your fridge with a sell by date of June 17, do yourself a favor and compost it ASAP. Two cases were from vegetables bought in another state but consumed in MI.

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. Recalls were issued in June for those four states as well as IL and Indiana.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled items should not consume them and throw them away immediately. "FDA is now reviewing distribution and supplier information related to the vegetable trays; the investigation is ongoing", according to the FDA's update this week.

Symptoms of cyclosporiasis include watery diarrhea and frequent, sometimes explosive, bowel movements, which typically show up a week after people ingest food containing the parasite. The parasites can also cause nausea, fatigue, and several other flu-like symptoms lasting for at least a month if not treated by doctors.
