No one should have to worry about whether the food they eat has been contaminated with human feces. However, Cyclospora food poisoning has become a growing and concerning problem in the U.S. People can get sick with Cyclospora by eating food or drinking water that has been contaminated with human feces. Over the past few summers, domestically-acquired Cyclospora infections have increased, particularly outbreaks linked to imported produce such as basil. Right now, our food poisoning legal team is investigating a Cyclospora outbreak linked to fresh basil imported from Mexico.
In 2018 alone, the CDC reported 2,299 cases of Cyclospora infections nationwide, about one-third of which stem from outbreaks in the Midwest linked to McDonald’s salads and Del Monte veggie trays. Our Cyclospora lawyers have represented more than 200 people sickened in these outbreaks.

Cyclospora Outbreak Investigations
Since Cyclospora is endemic to tropical and subtropical regions, the pathogen often spreads to the U.S. through imported produce. Outbreaks in the U.S. occur in the summer months, particularly from May to August. Currently, our Cyclospora lawyers are looking into the following outbreaks.
ALDI Little Salad Bar Brand Garden Salad sold in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, and Missouri, all Hy-Vee Brand Garden Salad sold in Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, and Nebraska, and Jewel-Osco Signature Farms Brand Garden Salad sold in Illinois. At least 76 people have been sickened so far.
A Cyclospora outbreak linked to fresh basil imported from Siga Logistics in Mexico has sickened at least 132 people from 11 states. Four people have been hospitalized. Exposure to Cyclopsora occurred at restaurants in four states, including Minnesota. At least 35 Minnesotans became sick after eating at the following restaurants.
- City Market in Rochester, MN
- Catered food from Duluth Grill in Duluth, MN
- Outback Steakhouse in Hermantown, MN
A Cyclospora outbreak at Cooper’s Hawk Winery in Jacksonville, FL has sickened between 80-100 people. Pritzker Hageman Cyclospora lawyers filed the first lawsuit in this outbreak on behalf of a Jacksonville woman.
