CDC Reports 212 Confirmed Cases of Cyclospora in Midwest

More information is listed on the CDC website.

Del Monte Foods did not immediately respond to HuffPost's request for comment.

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

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) describes cyclosporiasis as an intestinal illness caused by the microscopic parasite cyclospora cayetanensis, which can be ingested by humans through contaminated food and water.

Seven of the 212 people who got ill from the vegetable tray have been hospitalized since May.

It is also one of the main reasons cyclosporiasis is so hard to understand, said Michael Osterholm, a professor at the University of Minnesota and an worldwide foodborne-disease expert. "It's very hard to trace back".

The 212 cases have been reported in four states in the Midwest.

"That number will get larger because I'm talking to people that are just testing positive right now and there's no way that they would be contacted by the health department or counted as a case until they test positive", Osterholm said.

Cyclospora-related outbreaks have been linked to raspberries, basil, snow peas, sugar snap peas, cilantro and cabbage. In 2013, more than 600 cases of cyclosporiasis in two dozen states were tied to a salad mix.

The possibility exists that the parasite is spread through feces and tied to imported products from Mexico and South and Central America, but that remains uncertain.

"I figured I was putting healthy food in my body...find out I was putting poison in my body", Lund said.

The outbreaks typically happen in May and June.

FDA has not identified which of the ingredients is the vehicle for this outbreak; each component of these vegetable trays is under consideration.

They were recalled on June 15, 2018, for trays with a "Best if used by" date of June 17. The company is also recalling "small veggie trays" which are 28-ounces and were distributed in IL and Indiana.

The 28oz vegetable trays that were distributed to IL and IN are being recalled as of 15 June 2018.

The process can be challenging.

At least 152 people in Wisconsin and 54 people in Minnesota are sick in this outbreak. "Health care providers should promptly report cases so that public health can investigate them and attempt to determine the source in order to head off future cases", the agency said and requested that individuals with symptoms should seek medical attention.
