    CDC: More than 275 have unidentified stomach bug

    By MARY CLARE JALONICK


    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Federal health authorities say more than 275 people in seven states have now been sickened with an unidentified stomach bug.

    The Food and Drug Administration is investigating the cyclospora infections, which are often found in tropical or subtropical countries and have been linked to imported fresh produce in the past. It causes diarrhea and other flu-like symptoms.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says the infection has been reported in Iowa, Nebraska, Texas, Wisconsin, Georgia, Connecticut and New Jersey. Most of the illnesses occurred from mid-June to early July. The CDC says it isn't clear whether the cases are all linked.

    The illness is spread when people ingest foods or water contaminated with feces. The agency said it isn't clear whether the cases are all linked.

    You never know if you got the head of lettuce near where a field worker got the urge. Wash, scrub, get a salad spinner. Hope you heal up OK.

    JJ it was a very long stretch. Never left the house, or 3 seconds from the Loo. Had to, and some serious planning to buy a coulpe dozen frozen TV dinners at a Wally World north of me.

    1/3d of a bag of small frozen veggies on top and a pretty good meal.

    It's amazing how those bugs travel. The world has certainly gotten smaller. It's hard to believe I once drank surface water with no ill effect...in New Jersey!!

    Hear you JJ. Would cup my hands and take water straight out of the river without a second thought. Doubt I'd do that again.
