The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has issued a warning about some Del Monte vegetable products that have sickened more than 200 people in the Midwest.
A parasite in some plastic vegetable trays has been blamed for the outbreak, which has sent seven people to the hospital. The vegetable packages, which have a “Best If Enjoyed By” date of June 17, 2018, have been recalled. They were sold at several supermarket chains in Midwestern states.
Many who have gotten sick have been diagnosed with an intestinal infection caused by a parasite. Symptoms include diarrhea, stomach cramps, loss of appetite, nausea, fatigue and vomiting. (USA Today)
Vegetables aren't supposed to make you sick. Maybe it's best to eat fresh veggies and not ones that have been packaged -- especially in the summer. Parasites can be found in just about anything. You never know.
