How Do I Know If I Have a Cyclospora Infection?

Only a doctor can make a diagnosis of Cyclospora infection. It is best not to panic, but it is a good idea to monitor your health and symptoms in the days after exposure to the contaminated food item(s). If you have eaten at a restaurant or a food that is a subject to an outbreak or a recalled food and have become sick, urgent medical attention is highly recommended.

The onset of symptoms of a Cyclospora infection occur between 6 hours and 3 days after an infected person was exposed to a contaminated product. The symptoms of Cyclospora infections include:

  • Stomach cramps
  • Vomiting
  • Sick feeling in stomach
  • Cold and chills
  • Headache
  • Diarrhea
  • Bloody Stools

In some cases, diarrhea may be so severe that the ill person requires hospitalization. Early medical treatment can greatly reduce the risk for long-term complications, like reactive arthritis.

In many cases, including in healthy adults, it may take the body several months to return to normal bowel movements.

Cyclospora is among the most common form of foodborne illness in the United States. The CDC estimates that Cyclospora bacteria cause about 1.2 million illnesses, 23,000 hospitalizations, and 450 deaths every year, just in the United States alone. However, Cyclospora infections are highly underreported. Studies estimate that for every one case of Cyclospora that is reported, 29 go unreported.

Since someone can become ill not only by ingesting contaminated food, but also by touching domesticated animals (such as: chickens, poultry, reptiles, turtles, or even guinea pigs), Cyclospora can be in anyone’s environment. There is s myth that only animal products, like chicken and eggs, can be contaminated with Cyclospora. But past outbreaks of Cyclospora infections have been linked to a variety of foods, from produce to raw milk and even to peanut butter and shelf stable foods like cereal.

"Candess & Jory were extremely valuable resources for me when I contracted food poisoning. They guided me through every step of the legal process from start to finish, always willing to answer questions and be fully transparent. They were able to secure a settlement for me, but what I valued more was how truly concerned they were about my health and well-being beyond my case. I would gladly recommend Candess & Jory to anyone looking for attorneys who will fight on their behalf and really care about their clients."


"I cannot recommend Jory Lange highly enough. When my father died, Jory was there and got an unbelievably great settlement (one of the highest settlements in America for for this type of case). I say this not only as a grateful client, but as a trial lawyer myself concentrating in personal injury with over 25 years experience. Jory has the knowledge, the skills, and the ability to handle big personal injury cases and my family and I are exceedingly pleased with the results and the justice that he obtained through very hard work for us. "
