A CDC analysis of epidemiologic information has found that these bagged salads are a likely cause of the cyclospora infections. FDA is conducting a traceback investigation to determine the cause and source of the outbreak.
To date, at least 76 cyclospora illnesses, including 16 hospitalizations, have been linked to garden salads from ALDI, Hy-Vee, and/or Jewel-Osco. Illness onset dates range from May 11, 2020, through June 14, 2020.
States with cyclospora infections linked to the salads include:
- Iowa (28)
- Illinois (23)
- Kansas (1)
- Minnesota (10)
- Missouri (7)
- Nebraska (7)
This investigation is still in the beginning stages and there may be additional retailers and products impacted by the cyclospora outbreak. Anyone concerned about a potential food borne illness should contact their physician immediately.
