Quoted from posted article
Here are a list of the states where outbreaks have been confirmed: Iowa, Nebraska, Texas, Wisconsin, Georgia, Connecticut, New Jersey, Minnesota and Ohio.

Looks to me like pretty well a widespread outbreak so that if it is food borne it would be from some national distributor. That's about all that can be said at this point.

No U.S. citizens commenting on this story so far, I see. No solid connection being reported between the outbreaks. Yet. From what I have seen in some of these mixed spring salads, I wouldn't be surprised at any bad bugs found in them. Yuck! They ought to be outlawed during the summer months when it is so hot. I know we have refrigerated shipping, but something is happening to this stuff during the hot weather that is not good. I feel highly insulted to bring one home that looks beautiful only to find a big mess inside. I am getting ready to fire off another letter to one of these grocery chains about this garbage. I saw some on sale in a grocery yesterday with a 7/27/13 expiration date, and you could hardly see any green whatsoever so many of the leaves had turned totally brown. I can just imagine what that stuff smelled like!   I had bought one of the same batch 7/14/13 and by the next day it was smelling terrible. (These are huge containers of the mix.) I took it back in protest and bought some at another grocery. We will see how this one measures up. I bought plenty of Romaine, too, so you can see about how much confidence I have that the spring mix will be edible! The only reason I buy this stuff is to get the Chicory because it is hard to find otherwise.

Thanks for sharing this Cristina ....First I've heard of it....Just forwarded the link to my sister and niece in Georgia where there has been cases of people getting ill.  They hadn't heard about it either.

The scariest part is that they haven’t found the link between the people yet.  Why isn’t this getting more news coverage?

I'm thinking this had to have been covered here as well.  Just didn't watch TV or read a newspaper
with a houseful of company last week.  Closest this has been to our area that I know of is in CT
which isn't far.  Staying alerted!

That sounds very familiar! I can't imagine it being any other way, though!

I noticed today Dr D also put a heads up on his FB account ...

Looking at all the protocols related to digestive issues .. Polyflora, Deflect seems to be in order for all types ... This is the time to have your gut and immune system sorted out ...

Hopefully Dr will post some general form of attack for this ... Stay safe everyone ...

If we were all dying from an unknown bug from Mars I don't think Dr. D. would post anything about it here! He must think we are a stubborn lot to dislike Facebook so much! But even for him, I don't think I will change an iota about that!

Could they be sprayed with a preservative? Can't see how they would last on the shelf otherwise? Good on you for writing to companies!!  Only way we are ever going to get these people to change...

I've been wondering myself how they think something is going to stay fresh that long. These mixes that I buy are always organic, and they are fabulous when they are actually fresh. Really beautiful stuff too. But does my temper start going up if I smell that odor and begin to find rotten items mixed in with otherwise very nice ingredients. I have begun to think that they harvest some of them before others and refrigerate them for days waiting for other crops to mature. That is the only thing that makes sense to me. Anyway, I have already talked extensively to one of their representatives and written letters to them. They have credited my store card with gifts and assured me that they want to keep hearing from me if I keep having problems. Well, they will if this keeps up! There is one brand that is sold at another store - maybe someone mentioned it recently - anyway they pronounce on their containers that they have washed the mix three times so you don't have to. I want to write them and tell them  if they think I am going to dump it in a bowl and serve it without going through every sprig, they are out of their minds! It gets washed several more times too! But I have actually seen people do exactly what they suggest. What are they thinking!!?? (shudder)

An article on Cyclospora. Not much resolved here as far as I can see.

Curious to know the blood types of those who were stricken.  The duration bothers me.   I've had stomach bugs, but they'd last only two days max.  Lots of probiotics sounds like a good idea.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

It is coming from a farm in Mexico that sells to restaurant chains.

Yes, when I saw the particular mix they were saying it had been found in, I knew they were describing what is pretty standard fare in salads found in a lot of restaurants. And I haven't seen one in years that looked fresh so I don't eat them. -- A few little shavings of carrots, a sprig or two of purple cabbage and a pile of mostly white lettuce. Ugh. Waste of money. A lot better to swallow a couple of Chlorella and/or Live Cell caps!

Arkansas has been added to the list. I have one friend that I know of with it.  Keep your Black walnut tincture handy.  She was so upset, "Trying to eat healthy". Noticed one article says you need to wash your salad mixes. Of course the packages say you don't. I need to find me a salad washer.  Mostly I just like to grow my own.

I prefer to buy whole heads of lettuce.  I discard the outer leaves that tend to be bruised anyway.  The whole leaves are easier to clean.  I rub them under running water, and then pat them dry between two towels.

I would still at least rinse such lettuce.  I don't trust other people's cleaning methods!
