Texas, which has reported the most cases, reports more than 250 cases this summer.

The CDC says that at this time, no specific vehicle of interest has been identified, and investigations to identify a potential source (or sources) of infection are ongoing. It is too early to say whether cases of Cyclospora infection in different states are related to each other or to the same food item(s).
