Salmonella Outbreak Linked to Del Monte Vegetable Trays

A total of four illnesses have been linked to the trays.


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that it is inspecting Del Monte's Kankakee, Illinois facility after the Wisconsin Department of Health Services linked an outbreak of salmonellosis to vegetable trays processed at the facility. The six and 12-ounce trays contain broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and dill dip. They were sold at Kwik Trip convenience stores in Wisconsin and Minnesota. So far three illnesses in Wisconsin and one illness in Minnesota have been linked to the trays.

Kwik Trip has voluntarily removed all Del Monte vegetable trays from their stores. The FDA, CDC and state authorities from Wisconsin and Minnesota continue to investigate the cause and source of the outbreak, as well as the distribution of these products. This outbreak is not related to the Cyclospora infections linked to Del Monte vegetable trays in 2018.
