(WTOL) - Del Monte Fresh Produce announced a voluntary recall Monday of 6-ounce, 12-ounce and 28-ounce vegetable trays containing fresh broccoli, cauliflower, celery sticks, carrots, and dill dip.

  • Watery diarrhea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Cramping
  • Bloating
  • Increased gas
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Vomiting
  • Low-grade fever
