Del Monte Vegetable Snacks Linked to Intestinal Parasite Outbreak

Del Monte Vegetable Snacks Linked to Intestinal Parasite Outbreak

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.

Osterholm said he suspected the actual number of cases was much higher than the 212 confirmed so far by health officials. Those who were sickened bought the vegetables in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Iowa.

The FDA is now investigating the outbreak of cyclosporiasis, related to the Del Monte products.

According to the CDC, symptoms of cyclospora include diarrhea, with frequent, sometimes explosive, bowel movements. 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.

The CDC is saying more cases could be reported because the symptoms of the cyclosporiasis infection have a delayed onset of about one week and can last for weeks.




When this parasite contaminates food or water and is then ingested, it can cause the intestinal illness. 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'.

Before you swear off veggies forever, rest assured that the recall is in full affect. Del Monte has pulled its baby carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, and dill dip all from the shelves.

The vegetable trays that have been identified as the source of the outbreak were sold in 6-, 12-, and 28-ounce plastic packages and have been recalled. All sizes had best-by dates of June 17 or earlier, so officials say there is little chance anyone still has any of the products.
