The CDC, FDA, and local partners are investigating a multistate outbreak of Cyclospora infections linked to bagged salad mix purchased at ALDI, Hy-Vee, and Jewel-Osco stores in Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Minnesota, and Nebraska. The recall includes all ALDI Little Salad Bar Brand Garden Salad sold Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, and Minnesota; all Hy-Vee Brand Garden Salad. As of June 19, 2020, a total of 76 people with laboratory-confirmed Cyclospora infections associated with this outbreak have been reported from 6 states: IA (28), IL (23), KS (1), MN (10), MO (7) and NE (7). The products were sold in Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Minnesota, and Nebraska, and all Jewel-Osco Signature Farms Garden Salad sold in Illinois. Illnesses started on dates ranging from May 11, 2020, to June 14, 2020. Sixteen people have been hospitalized. No deaths attributed to Cyclospora have been reported. Epidemiology evidence indicates that ALDI Little Salad Bar Brand Garden Salad, Hy-Vee Brand Garden Salad, or Jewel-Osco Signature Farms Garden Salad are likely sources of this outbreak, but does not explain all of the cases. @ https://www.cdc.gov/parasites/cyclosporiasis/outbreaks/2020/
