More than 200 sickened by parasite with symptoms including 'explosive' bowel movements

Cyclosporiasis is caused by Cyclospora cayetanensis, a single-celled protozoa most commonly transmitted on produce contaminated with human fecal matter, particularly from tropical or subtropical regions where the parasite is native.

The infected trays were sold at Kwik Trip, Kwik Star, Demond's, Sentry, Potash, Meehan's, Country Market, FoodMax and Peapod, the agency said.

As it turns out, Lund is one of the reported 56 people in the state who fell sick with a Cyclospora infection, an intestinal parasite he got after eating Fresh Del Monte Produce vegetable trays he picked up at a nearby Kwik Trip. Two cases were from vegetables bought in another state but consumed in MI.

Seven people have been hospitalized, and no deaths have been reported. As many as 54 cases have been reported in Minnesota. They range in age from 13 to 79 years old. The condition has been linked to "6 oz., 12 oz., and 28 oz. vegetable trays containing fresh broccoli, cauliflower, celery sticks, carrots, and dill dip", which were recalled by Del Monte Fresh Produce on June 15.

Vladimir Putin backing boosts Russian Federation coach Stanislav Cherchesov and his players
Although Russia failed to book a semi-final encounter with England, Cherchesov claimed Putin was impressed by their display. Croatia went on to beat Russian Federation 4-3 on penalties after an emotionally draining quarter-final game yesterday.

Symptoms of cyclosporiasis include watery diarrhea and frequent, sometimes explosive, bowel movements, which typically show up a week after people ingest food containing the parasite. People infected may also experience loss of appetite, weight loss, stomach cramps or pain, nausea, gas and fatigue.

FDA has not identified which of the ingredients is the vehicle for this outbreak; each component of these vegetable trays is under consideration.

Although the illness can be treated with antibiotics, symptoms can last from a few days to a few months. "FDA is now reviewing distribution and supplier information related to the vegetable trays; the investigation is ongoing", according to the FDA's update this week.

'Consumers who believe that they are in possession of any of the above products affected by this recall should dispose of the product in an appropriate waste container, ' the FDA said.
