Attorney Investigating Cyclospora Outbreak Says Chain Restaurant is Involved

Noted food safety attorney Fred Pritzker is actively investigating the Cyclospora outbreak that is linked to bagged, mixed salad. Pritzker says he has been investigating this outbreak for several weeks and there may be at least one nationally advertised restaurant chain involved.

To date there are a total of 397 cases of Cyclospora infection (cyclosporiasis) from 15 states, according to the CDC and state health officials: Iowa (143), Texas (122), Nebraska (76), Florida (24), Wisconsin (10), New York (5), Illinois (4) Georgia (3), Connecticut (2), Missouri (2), Kansas (1), Minnesota (1), New Jersey (1), and Ohio (1).


  1. Why so much secrecy? I was grocery shopping today and decided not to buy any prepackaged salad mixes, and I doubt I will in the future either. I bought loose leaf lettuce instead..and I did not order a salad fro lunch as I usually do at Panara’s. They are doing a huge disservice to us consumers keeping all of us in the dark.

    I posted on my facebook page at least the facts as they we know them, telling everyone to stay away from the salad mixes until we find out more information.
