FDA: Parasites In Del Monte Vegetables Causing ‘Explosive’ Diarrhea

CDC Reports 212 Confirmed Cases of Cyclospora in Midwest

The two cases from MI reportedly purchased the vegetable tray in Wisconsin and therefore MI is not impacted from this outbreak.

At least 212 people in four Midwest states have been sickened as of Monday by a parasite found in plastic vegetable trays sold under the Del Monte brand.

This week's CDC update showed slightly stronger wording. Officials say people who have already eaten these products and have had diarrhea lasting more than three days should contact their health care provider.

Seven people have hospitalized due to the outbreak, however there have been no deaths linked to the contaminated Del Monte products.

The 212 cases occurred in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and technically also MI, but the instances of illness in MI were reported as related to people who bought products in Wisconsin.

The accused filmed the act and blackmailed the girl, saying they would make the video public if she informed anyone. However, a few days later, the alleged rapists shared the video with other school friends, the FIR said.

A recall was also issued in mid-June for the Del Monte trays, which included baby carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and dill dip, and were labeled for sale by Jun 17.

Consumers who have purchased the recalled items should not consume them and throw them away immediately. 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.

FDA has not identified which of the ingredients is the vehicle for this outbreak; each component of these vegetable trays is under consideration. The FDA is now reviewing distribution and supplier information related to the vegetable trays, as well, in its ongoing investigation.

According to the CDC, 212 cases of cyclosporiasis - an intestinal infection caused by the cyclospora parasite - were reported as of July 5.

The time between becoming infected and becoming sick is usually about 1 week.
