The FDA is inspecting the Illinois Del Monte facility that was responsible for producing vegetable trays that have been linked to an outbreak of salmonella.
On May 21, the Wisconsin Department of Health announced the vegetable trays produced by Del Monte Fresh Produce sold at Kwik Trip stores in Wisconsin and Minnesota had been linked to three illnesses in Wisconsin and one in Minnesota. The patients reported becoming ill between April 13 and April 27, 2019. Kwik Trip has since voluntarily removed all Del Monte Vegetable Trays from its stores.
The FDA, CDC and state authorities from Wisconsin and Minnesota will continue to investigate the cause and source of the outbreak, however, this outbreak is not released to the Cyclospora infections that were linked to Del Monte vegetable trays last summer.
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (WDHS) is warning people not to 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.
