JEFFERSON -- The Wisconsin Department of Health Services, the Minnesota Department of Health and local health departments are investigating an increase of Cyclospora infections

Eleven patients in Wisconsin and three in Minnesota have been diagnosed with the illness after purchasing a vegetable tray from a Kwik Trip location. The vegetable tray in question contains broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and dill dip in varying sizes.

The infection is often found in developing countries, but during summer months it has a tendency to travel with produce that comes into the U.S. 

Symptoms of Cyclospora include frequent diarrhea, loss of weight or appetite, cramping, bloating, nausea, fatigue or a low-grade fever.

If you have any of these symptoms or purchased one of the vegetable trays, see your health care provider who can provide appropriate treatment.
