Del Monte Cyclospora Lawsuits: One Year Later Victims Still Bringing Claims
The national food safety law firm of Ron Simon & Associates was the
first to file a lawsuit
when Del Monte announced the voluntary recall of 6 – 28 oz. vegetable trays containing fresh broccoli, cauliflower, celery sticks, carrots, and dill dip sold at Kwik Trip, Kwik Star, Demond’s, Sentry, Potash, Meehan’s, Country Market, FoodMax Supermarket and Peapod retail locations in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Since then, Ron Simon has worked hard to settle the claims of numerous victims, as well as the claims of those who have only recently contacted the law firm.
Its Not Too Late To File a Claim
still time to file a claim
for most of the victims in the affected region. Ron Simon encourages victims to do so sooner rather than later as it is always preferable to do so when the evidence is more recent and to make sure they do not wait until after the applicable statute of limitations has run – in many states between one and three years.
According to the CDC, by September 6, 2018, there were at least 250 laboratory confirmed illnesses in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan. But his number is very likely only a small fraction of the number who actually became ill with Cyclospora, a parasite found in feces-contaminated imported fruits and vegetables that causes vomiting, severe bloating, abdominal cramping, gas, and diarrhea. The symptoms of Cyclosporiasis can come and go over the course of a couple months, and it difficult to diagnose because medical professionals must specifically request a Cyclospora screen when sending a fecal sample in for testing.
Mr. Simon and his law firm have established a Cyclospora Claim Center to assist victims in the outbreak. The Cyclospora Claim Center can be reached toll-free at 1-888-335-4901 or online at
