Cyclospora Attorney Investigates Lawsuit for Outbreak in Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, Kansas, Texas and Wisconsin

Cyclospora Outbreak in Iowa and NebraskaAttorney Ryan Osterholm is actively investigating the Cyclospora outbreak that has sickened people in Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Nebraska, Texas and Wisconsin. The source of the outbreak has not been definitively identified, but it is a vegetable product that was widely distributed to several locations. The tainted product may have found its way to restaurants, grocery stores and food service companies.

“Cyclospora is a nasty bug. The outbreak victims who have contacted our law firm have suffered severe diarrhea for days or weeks,” said Osterholm, a national food safety lawyer. “Sulfa (sulfamethoxazole) is used in combination with another antibiotic to treat Cyclospora infections, so victims who are allergic to sulfa are left without a good treatment option and may be sick for months.”

The illness caused by the parasite Cyclospora cayetanensis is called cyclosporiasis, an intestinal illness that causes watery, sometimes explosive, diarrhea. Other symptoms include loss of appetite, weight loss, stomach cramps/pain, bloating, increased gas, nausea, fatigue, vomiting, body aches, headache, fever and other flu-like symptoms.
