Parasite Found in Cilantro Exported From Mexico to Texas

It is common that seasonal and fresh produce is imported by the United States from countries like Mexico or the southern American nations. However sometimes when the goods are being handled or in transit, they may be affected by a few germs and other undesirables.

Usually, benign contaminations can be easily washed off but on certain occasions they cause havoc and release the contagion of dreadful diseases. One such case has recently taken place where the cilantro leaves that were imported to Texas from Mexico were contaminated with a parasite called Cyclospora.

According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, there have already been about 205 patients affected by the parasite and have symptoms like intestinal illness. Apparently, these symptoms could last months.

The FDA has banned cilantro from Puebla in Mexico as the produce has been the source of the cyclosporiasis parasite since the year 2012.

The symptoms of the people affected with the parasite include body-aches, fever, digestive problems, vomiting, gas, bloating, cramping and even loss of appetite.

With infections like that in the air, one should make sure that fruits and vegetables are purchased from trusted sources and cleaned very well before consumption.
