More on the outbreak

Cyclospora is spread by people ingesting something—such as food or water—that was contaminated with feces (stool). Cyclospora needs time (typically, at least 1–2 weeks) after being passed in a bowel movement to become infectious for another person. Therefore, it is unlikely that Cyclospora is passed directly from one person to another.

What is Cyclospora?

Products were sold in many states under either the brand name Fresh Express or the store brand labels ALDI Little Salad Bar, Giant Eagle, Hy-Vee, Jewel-Osco Signature Farms, ShopRite Wholesome Pantry, and Walmart Marketside.

Which Salads are affected?

As of July 22, 2020, a total of 641 people with laboratory-confirmed Cyclospora infections associated with this outbreak have been reported from 11 states: Georgia (1), Illinois (198), Iowa (195), Kansas (5), Minnesota (73), Missouri (57) Nebraska (55), North Dakota (6), Pennsylvania (2), South Dakota (13) and Wisconsin (36). The ill person from Georgia purchased and ate a bagged salad product while traveling in Missouri.

What states are affected?

Do not eat bagged garden salad from ALDI, Hy-Vee, or Jewel-Osco in any package. If you or a loved one has fallen ill after eating bagged garden salad, visit a doctor immediately to be treated and request a stool sample to uniquely identify the parasite. Place the bagged garden salad in a safe place and contact our lawyers.

Join the Cyclospora Outbreak Lawsuit

The FDA recently published an announcement declaring the recall of “bagged garden salads” from two grocery store chains in Midwestern states, Hy-Vee Inc. and Jewel-Osco. ALDI, the third grocery store which received and distributed the adulterated product, notified the FDA that they had removed the product from their store shelves, but an official recall had yet to be issued. However, on June 22, 2020, ALDI joined the others and announced a voluntary recall on its 12-ounce “Little Salad Bar Garden Salads” because of its association with Fresh Express Inc., the alleged origin of the Cyclospora Outbreak spreading across the Midwest.

The items included in ALDI’s recall bear the label, “ALDI Little Salad Bar Garden Salads” and a best-if-used-by date of May 16 to July 04, 2020. According to ALDI’s records, the FDA reports that the products of concern were distributed to Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin between the dates May 1 and June 19.

The Cyclospora Outbreak spreading across the Midwest was reported, just on Monday, to have caused 76 reported cases of illness and 16 hospitalizations. As of today, Thursday, June 25, 2020, the Cyclospora Outbreak has increased to 122 reported cases of illness and 19 hospitalizations. The FDA reports that the range for the onset of illnesses connected with the Cyclospora Outbreak, linked with Fresh Express Inc., occurred between the dates of 5/11/2020 - 6/15/2020.

Cyclospora cayetanensis, is a microscopic unicellular parasite that can cause an intestinal illness known as cyclosporiasis, when ingested through feces contaminated food or drink. The parasite typically takes 1-2 weeks to germinate once the feces have been passed in a bowel movement. Therefore, the CDC says that it is unlikely that the illness is spread person-to-person. Symptoms like watery diarrhea, stomach bloating and cramps, weight loss, nausea and fatigue, typically present themselves within one week of consuming Cyclospora contaminated food or drink.

Anyone still in possession of the concerned products should discard them immediately, or return them to their original place of purchase. For further information regarding the Cyclospora Outbreak, such as distribution and case updates, visit the FDA’s website.
