DHS Investigating Salmonella Risk with Del Monte Vegetable Trays

Multiple agencies, including the Wisconsin Department of
Health Services and the Wisconsin Department of Ag, Trade and Consumer
Protection are continuing to investigate a multi-state outbreak of salmonella
tied to Del Monte vegetable trays sold at Kwik Trip stores. Three people in
Wisconsin and one person in Minnesota have reported becoming sick after
purchasing one of the vegetable trays from a Kwik Trip location. The patients
reported becoming ill between April 13th and April 27th
of this year. The trays associated with the outbreak contain broccoli,
cauliflower, carrots and dill dip and come in six ounce and 12 ounce varieties.
DHS says the trays may have been distributed to other retailers in Wisconsin,
and people are urged not to purchase or eat the product. Kwik Trip has since
removed all Del Monte vegetable trays from their stores. Symptoms that come
with salmonella poisoning include diarrhea, abdominal pains, fever and vomiting
that lasts for several days. Anyone who has consumed one of the veggie trays purchased
at any retail store and is experiencing symptoms is asked to contact their
health care provider and their local health department.
