Vegetable trays sold at Kwik Trip again linked to salmonella sickness

The same Del Monte products caused hundreds of illnesses last summer.

Last summer, bacteria-filled vegetable trays from Kwik Trip gas stations were to blame for sickening hundreds of people in the Midwest, and more cases have been reported within the last month. 

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services announced Tuesday that the same Del Monte vegetable trays sold at Kwik Trip stores has again stirred up the "ongoing multi-state outbreak of salmonellosis." 

So far, three people in Wisconsin and one person in Minnesota have fallen ill after consuming the suspected vegetable trays. 

  • Del Monte Vegetable Tray (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, dill dip) 6 oz.
  • Del Monte Vegetable Tray (broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, dill dip) 12 oz.

All of the product has been removed from Kwik Trip stores, with the four cases being reported between April 13-27. 

"It is possible additional illnesses will be reported due to the delay from when a person becomes ill to when it is reported to public health agencies," the Wisconsin DHS said in the release.

Symptoms of salmonella sickening include diarrhea, abdominal pains, fever, and vomiting that lasts for several days. Anyone with the symptoms is urged to contact their local health provider. 

The exact same vegetable trays from Del Monte resulted in 200+ illnesses in the Midwest last summer, with the majority of cases being reported in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa and Michigan.
