Just one day after the Public Health Agency of Canada announced its investigation into 37 cases of Cyclospora in three Canadian provinces, the CDC made its own announcement – there were now 509 confirmed cases in this Cyclospora outbreak. Both countries have issued recalls of the Fresh Express salads that are believed to the source of this bagged salads outbreak. As of July 1, 2020, 33 people have been hospitalized. 

As of July 8, 2020, the states associated with this outbreak include: Illinois (151), Iowa (160), Kansas (5), Minnesota (63), Missouri (46) Nebraska (48), North Dakota (6), and Wisconsin (30).

The investigation is still ongoing in both countries.
