Cyclospora outbreak in Canada possibly linked to imported produce - Montreal - CBC News

Quote:
The federal government is advising Canadians to check where their produce comes from after an outbreak of cyclospora was reported in four provinces.

The Public Health Agency of Canada said 51 cases of the intestinal illness cyclosporiasis were recorded in Quebec, Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia between May and July this year.
Quote:
cyclospora are only known to be transmitted on produce.

Symptoms include watery diarrhea, abdominal bloating and gas, fatigue, stomach cramps, loss of appetite, weight loss, mild fever and nausea.

It is hard to prevent cyclosporiasis, since washing contaminated produce does not get rid of the parasite, according to health officials.

As a result, the government recommends cooking produce from countries where cyclospora is found. According to the health agency, the parasite is common in tropical and subtropical countries including Peru, Cuba, India, Nepal, Mexico, Guatemala, Southeast Asia and Dominican Republic.

It says cyclospora is not commonly found on produce from Canada, the United States and European countries.

Excellent news! There's no room for gun toting thugs in Canada. When they try that in Western Canada, they claim they're just passing through to Alaska. They too are stripped of the illegal weapon(s), charged, detained, and sent home after arraignment with orders to re-appear for sentencing.
