“CYCLOSPORA OUTBREAKS AND THE IMPORTANCE OF WORKING WITH STAKEHOLDERS”

Cyclospora cayetanensis has been implicated in cyclosporiasis illness outbreaks in the United States associated with produce imported from Mexico since the mid ’90s. Recently domestically and imported fresh produce samples have tested positive for C. cayetanensis. Collaborative efforts with stakeholders are critical to help reduce Cyclospora fresh produce outbreaks.
