Cyclosporiasis: Free Consultation with Lawyers

What Caused the Cyclosporiasis Outbreak?

On June 28, 2013, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) was notified of two laboratory-confirmed cases of Cyclospora infection in Iowa residents who had become ill in June and did not have a history of international travel during the 14 days before the onset of illness. Since that date, the CDC has been collaborating with public health officials in multiple states and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to investigate an outbreak of cyclosporiasis.

The CDC, FDA and state health departments are being tight-lipped about the source of the outbreak. Several of the people who have contacted us have said they visited a chain restaurant a few days before getting sick. We also talked to one health department official that said lettuce salad from a chain restaurant was a prime suspect.

Over 350 have confirmed cases of cyclosporiasis, and we expect that number to keep climbing. Some of the states involved have only a few cases, some if not all of which are people who ate at a chain restaurant in Florida, Iowa, Nebraska or Texas.
