What we know:

  • To date, three ill people from two states have been associated with this outbreak and have reported consuming a Del Monte vegetable tray prior to their illness
    • Ill people reported becoming ill between April 13 and April 27, 2019
  • Vegetable trays were purchased from a Wisconsin or Minnesota Kwik Trip location
