The company is also recalling these veggie trays in the state of Wisconsin, as well as 28 oz. veggie trays which include broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, celery and dill dip, which were distributed to IL and Indiana.

Those trays - which included broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and dill dip - also were available in IN at Kwik Trip/Kwik Star locations.

Multiple U.S. government agencies are investigating illnesses associated with hundreds of Del Monte vegetable trays sold in some states in the Midwest, officials said. The two cases from MI reportedly purchased the vegetable tray in Wisconsin and therefore MI is not impacted from this outbreak.

The Del Monte vegetable trays - packaged with broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and dill dip - were recalled in June from Kwik Trip, Kwik Star, Demond's, Sentry, Potash, Meehan's, Country Market, FoodMax Supermarket and Peapod stores. 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.

Those affected have been diagnosed with cyclosporiasis, an intestinal infection caused by the cyclospora parasite. FDA is now reviewing distribution and supplier information related to the vegetable trays; the investigation is ongoing. Some people who are infected with Cyclospora do not have any symptoms.

Symptoms of cyclosporiasis include watery diarrhea and frequent, sometimes explosive, bowel movements, which typically show up a week after people ingest food containing the parasite. Other symptoms may include vomiting, body aches, headache, fever and other flu-like symptoms.
