The CDC reports today that 206 people with laboratory confirmed Cyclospora infections and who reported eating bagged salad mix before getting sick have been reported from 8 Midwestern states (Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, and Wisconsin). Illnesses started on dates ranging from May 11, 2020 to June 17, 2020. 23 people have been hospitalized. No deaths have been reported.

The investigation indicates that bagged salad mix containing iceberg lettuce, carrots, and red cabbage produced by Fresh Express is a likely source of this outbreak.
