CDC Reports 212 Confirmed Cases of Cyclospora in Midwest

CDC Reports 212 Confirmed Cases of Cyclospora in Midwest

The reports of infection seem to primarily be from the upper Midwestern region, including Minnesota, Iowa, and MI.

Osterholm said he suspected the actual number of cases was much higher than the 212 confirmed so far by health officials.

Businesses that reportedly sold the tainted veggies include Kwik Trip, Kwik Star, Demond's, Sentry, Potash, Meehan's, Country Market, Food Max Supermarket and Peapod. "The two cases from MI reportedly purchased the vegetable tray in Wisconsin and therefore MI is not impacted from this outbreak", said the FDA.

A previous major cyclosporiasis outbreak was reported in 2015, when 546 individuals were infected across 31 states. On June 15 Del Monte recalled 28-ounce trays. Because of the expiration date, these likely no longer are in consumers' possession, but in case you still have them, you're encouraged to throw them away.

Del Monte-branded fresh vegetables have been linked to a parasite that has sickened more than 200 people in the Midwest.

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 outbreak of cyclosporiasis, an intestinal infection caused by the cyclospora parasite, was first tracked by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in mid-June, after 78 people were reported ill across the region.

FDA has not identified which of the ingredients is the vehicle for this outbreak; each component of these vegetable trays is under consideration. Specific lab tests are required to diagnose the infection, which has symptoms that can be confused with other illnesses. Some people who are infected with Cyclospora do not have any symptoms.
