Kwik Trip convenience stores have removed Del Monte vegetable trays after Wisconsin and Minnesota health officials said 14 consumers contracted cyclospora infections.

The Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Minnesota Department of Health, along with local health departments in those states, are investigating the 11 cyclospora cases in Wisconsin and three in Minnesota.

All patients reported buying the Del Monte vegetable trays at Kwik Trips in those states, according to a June 8 news release from the Wisconsin state health department. The vegetable trays have broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and dill dip and may have been available at other retail locations, according to the release. The trays were available in 6-ounce and 12-ounce sizes.

The release did not say when the first cyclospora cases were reported.

As of early June 11, no recall of the vegetable trays had been announced by the Food and Drug Administration.

Kwik Trip removed the vegetable trays from stores, according to the release.
