Del Monte at it again! Parasites infect 200 people with illnesses!

Parasite-infected Del Monte vegetables linked to over 200 illnesses

An outbreak of an intestinal parasite found in Del Monte vegetable trays has caused more than 200 confirmed illnesses and forced the company to issue a recall.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced last week an outbreak of Cyclospora cayetanensis, a parasite that infects the intestinal tract, found in the vegetable trays has spread across four states and sickened 212 people.

Known cases have so far been identified on Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin and Michigan where the products were sold and have since been recalled from Kwik Trip, Kwik Star, Demond’s, Sentry, Potash, Meehan’s, Country Market, FoodMax Supermarket, and Peapod locations.

All 6-, 12- and 28-ounce veggie packages containing fresh broccoli, cauliflower, celery sticks, carrots, and dill dip with a “best if enjoyed by” date of June 17 or later may be contaminated and should be thrown away, the CDC advised.

As many as seven people have been hospitalized but no deaths have been reported.

“Avoiding food or water that may have been contaminated with feces is the best way to prevent cyclosporiasis,” the CDC shared on its site. “Wash hands with soap and warm water before and after handling or preparing fruits and vegetables. Wash cutting boards, dishes, utensils, and counter tops with soap and hot water between the preparation of raw meat, poultry and seafood products and the preparation of fruits and vegetables that will not be cooked.”

First, they kill pandas. Now this? When will their reign of terror end?

That's what people get for eating vegetables.

Thank goodness I've never bought that stuff. I always buy my vegetables separate and fresh.

I imagine this product is for the microwaveable dummy that can't cook and works 24/7 and don't got time to cook or eat right.
