Cyclospora outbreak heightens food safety concerns

Was it a contaminated bagged lettuce mix that caused a foodborne outbreak that has now made 400 people sick in 16 states, including Minnesota? Or was it something else?

More than a month after the first illnesses caused by a foodborne parasite known as cyclospora were reported in Iowa, state health officials there and in Nebraska released the results of their outbreak investigations last week. The culprit, according to them, at least, was a bagged salad mix that consumers could have been exposed to at restaurants or grocery stores.

Consumers normally can breathe a sigh of relief when health officials pinpoint an outbreak’s source. Products that likely made people sick will be pulled off store shelves and out of restaurants. Those who have become ill can connect the dots of what they’ve eaten and where they’ve eaten and get the medical care they need.
