Largest Multi-State Food Poisoning Outbreaks of 2013: #1

A Cyclospora outbreak that began in June and sickened 631 people in 25 states before ending in late September was the largest multi-state food poisoning outbreak of 2013. Health investigators determined that the outbreak had multiple food sources and that most illnesses were linked to tainted produce imported from Mexico. Almost 80 percent of the cases were from three states: Iowa, Nebraska and Texas.  Public  health investigators in Iowa, which had 140 cases, and Nebraska, which had 87, determined that the source of illness in those states was commercial bagged salad mix produced by Taylor Farms of Mexico and served at Olive Graden and Red Lobster restaurants. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration FDA concluded that many of the 270 cases of … [Read more...]

Nationwide Cyclospora Outbreak Case Count Stands at 636

The CDC has updated the Cyclospora outbreak again; now 636 people are ill and 45 people have been hospitalized. That's an addition of 20 cases since the last update was issued two days ago. The next update from the government will be on September 4, 2013. Cyclospora is a single-celled parasite that causes an infection called cyclosporiasis.

Salad mix from Taylor Farms, which was identified as the source of Cyclospora illnesses in Iowa and Nebraska, is not the source of Cyclospora illnesses in Texas, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Those illnesses were caused by three  different food sources (mesclun, raspberries and basil) from different countries. At least 610 cases of Cyclospora have been … [Read more...]
