    People can become infected with Cyclospora by consuming food or water contaminated with the parasite. People living or traveling in countries where cyclosporiasis is common may be at increased risk for infection. However, Cyclospora has been clinging to fruits and vegetables that are shipped to the United States, making consumers in the U.S. sick as well. In fact, an outbreak of Cyclospora linked to a salad mix from a Mexican farm in the summer of 2013 caused nearly 650 people from 25 states to become ill.

    More Than 50 Sickened By Cyclosporiasis Parasite

    In a statement released on July 2, the Texas Department of State Health Services said that at least 56 people have been infected by parasite Cyclospora since May.

    The agency also said that it is working with health departments around the state and in other states that experience the same outbreak to gather more information about the cases and find out if the infections have a common source.

    Past outbreaks in the United States were linked to consumption of imported fresh produce, such as fresh pre-packaged salad mix, basil, raspberries, snow peas, and mesclun green.

    Cyclospora: A one-celled, microscopic parasite, Cyclospora cayetanensis causes an intestinal infection, usually after drinking water or eating produce contaminated with feces. While travelers to tropical climates are warned about Cyclospora, Americans inside the country are usually infected by eating imported, contaminated fruit. Because it is a parasite, the infection does not permanently clear on its own, but can be treated with a combination of drugs. Thoroughly washing produce is important and cooking does not always kill the parasite.
