Kwik Trip has removed some vegetable trays from its shelves after several reported illnesses in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Health department officials in the two states issued a warning after investigating an increase of infections from Cyclospora, a parasite commonly found in developing countries.
Officials say 11 people in Wisconsin and three in Minnesota reported buying vegetable trays at Kwik Trip prior to getting sick.
The Del Monte vegetable trays sold at Kwik Trip contained broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and dill dip and may have been available at other retail locations. Further details on distribution are pending.
Consumers should not eat the following products:
• Del Monte Vegetable Tray (containing broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and dill dip) 6 oz.
• Del Monte Vegetable Tray (containing broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and dill dip) 12 oz.
Kwik Trip voluntarily removed the product from stores.
Symptoms of Cyclospora infection include:
• Frequent watery diarrhea
• Loss of appetite and weight
• Cramping, bloating, and/or increased gas
• Nausea (vomiting is less frequent)
• Low-grade fever
Anyone experiencing any one of these symptoms should see a health care provider who can provide appropriate treatment. It may take a week after consuming the product for symptoms to begin.
