Mysterious Stomach Bug Getting A Little Too Close

 

When the stomach bug hits Iowa and Wisconsin, it’s a little too close for comfort. And while there’s never a good time to have flu-like symptoms, a beautiful summer day is the worst.

According to the CDC, more than 250 people in at least six states have come down with a stomach bug that may be linked to foodborne illness.

So far, reports of illness have come from Iowa, Nebraska, Texas, Wisconsin, Georgia and Connecticut.

Illinois and Kansas have also notified the agency of one case each.

The Food and Drug Administration is investigating the cyclospora infections, which have been linked to imported fresh produce in the past.

The illness is usually spread when people ingest foods or water contaminated with feces. Ewwww! Just the thought of that makes me cringe.

The agency said it is investigating additional illnesses and the number of those sickened could grow.
