The source of the widespread stomach bug outbreak has been tracked in at least two states to a Mexican farm that supplied salad mix to Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants. On Sunday, the FDA announced that the illnesses in Nebraska and Iowa have been traced to Taylor Farms in Salinas, California. The FDA is still trying to determine if the prepackaged salad mix was the source of infections in the other states. The plant involved produced 48 million servings of salads for thousands of restaurants in the Midwest and eastern U.S. in June. The plant has an extensive water-testing program. The CDC posted on their website that they will continue to work with federal, state and local partners in the investigation to determine whether this conclusion applies to the increase in cases of cyclosporiasis in other states.
