A Closer Look at Cyclospora

Cyclospora infection, or cyclosporiasis, is caused when a person ingests food or water contaminated with feces. Contamination occurs when foods like fresh produce come in direct contact with an infected person or contaminated water. Some health experts say fruit and vegetables grown or packed outside of the U.S. may have increased risk of contamination. (Photo: UPI Photo /Landov)
