The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the 163 "laboratory-confirmed cases of cyclosporiasis" came from health agencies in Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

Victims of Cyclosporiasis usually begin to experience symptoms within a week, according to the CDC. It is an intestinal sickness caused by a microscopic parasite called Cyclospora cayetanensis.

Other symptoms of cyclosporiasis include loss of appetite, weight loss, cramps, bloating, gassiness, nausea and fatigue, the CDC said. Therefore, it is unlikely that cyclosporiasis is passed directly from one person to another. Vomiting, body aches, headache, fever, and other flu-like symptoms are also relatively common.

If untreated, symptoms can persist for several weeks or a month or more.
