INDIANAPOLIS -- Vegetable trays sent to select stores in Indiana are being recalled because of a possible health risk for an intestinal parasite. 

Del Monte Fresh Produce issued a voluntary recall Monday for some 6 oz., 12 oz. and 20 oz. vegetable trays containing fresh broccoli, cauliflower, celery sticks, carrots and dill dip after being notified that those products could be linked to a recent cluster of illnesses and have the potential to be contaminated with Cyclospora, a parasite that can cause intestinal illness.
