June 24, 2020 — An outbreak of cyclospora infections in the U.S. Midwest appears to be linked to bagged salad mixes, the U.S. Centers for Disease Command and Prevention stated Tuesday.

There have been 122 situations in seven states — Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Minnesota, Nebraska and Wisconsin — and 19 men and women have been hospitalized. No deaths have been described.

An investigation implies that bagged salad mixes containing carrots, purple cabbage, and iceberg lettuce bought at ALDI, Hy-Vee and Jewel-Osco outlets in the Midwest are a possible source of the outbreak, according to the CDC.

The outlets have recalled the solutions.
