CBS News reports that days after eating salads at home and at restaurants in Texas, Suzie Matteis developed diarrhea that persisted for weeks before a test found Cyclospora.
“I had Montezuma’s revenge, dysentery, something was going on,” Matteis said. “Weight loss – I still don’t have a normal appetite. I just want to get better because I’m used to being in good shape.”
Matteis still doesn’t know what food made her sick. Investigators in Texas have not named a source.
Matteis was given antibiotics and is slowly improving.
“I think that we should know where the food came from,” she said. “I’m skittish. I don’t know where to go to eat. I’m not out of the woods yet. I’m still feeling poorly.”
