Previous Cases

United Press International reports that previous epidemics of cyclosporiasis have been traced to contaminated lettuce, basil and raspberries grown in Guatemala, Mexico and the U.S. Because cyclospora cannot survive freezing temperatures, it is not common on crops grown in colder seasons, such as spinach, broccoli or greens harvested in the winter months.
