Cyclospora is a parasite that is excreted in the feces of infected people. Illnesses occur when water containing infected human feces is used to grow or process produce or when food comes into direct contact with human fecal matter. Symptoms of a Cyclospora infection include explosive diarrhea that is sometimes watery, muscle aches, abdominal cramps, vomiting, fever and other flu-like symptoms.
