Berries Linked to Cyclospora

May 30, 1997|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Raspberries from Guatemala and Chile are suspected of causing an outbreak of 90 cases of cyclospora in five states in the last two months, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said. It's the second time in as many years that imported raspberries have been blamed for cases of the intestinal illness. The recent cases were reported in California, Florida, Nevada, New York and Texas at events such as luncheons and weddings. Cyclospora invades the small intestine and causes diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss, fatigue and muscle aches.
