80-100 people have contracted Cyclospora infections after eating at Cooper’s Hawk Winery and Restaurant in Jacksonville, FL. Many of the people sickened were attending a charity event held by the Exchange Club. The Duval County Health Department is working with the CDC to determine the potential source of the outbreak, in addition to surveying attendees and examining lab tests. Anyone who got sick after attending the event should seek immediate medical attention.

Cyclospora Outbreaks Are On the Rise
As temperatures rise during summer months, so does the likelihood of Cyclospora outbreaks. A parasite native to subtropical climates, Cyclospora spreads to the U.S. through imported produce. People can get sick with Cyclospora by eating food that has been contaminated with feces. Symptoms including explosive diarrhea can last for weeks or months. Often, symptoms may seem to disappear and then return one or more times.
Just last summer, there were two Cyclospora outbreaks from produce, including the McDonald’s outbreak linked to Fresh Express salad mix, and another Cyclospora outbreak linked to Del Monte vegetable trays sold by Kwik Trip. Our food poisoning lawyers are currently representing more than 200 clients in the Del Monte outbreak.
