WASHINGTON (WFSB/AP) -
More than 250 people in at least six states including two cases in Connecticut have come down with a stomach bug that could be linked to foodborne illness.
The Centers for Disease Control says the cyclospora infection causing diarrhea and other flu-like symptoms has been reported in Iowa, Nebraska, Texas, Wisconsin, Georgia and Connecticut.
The CDC says 10 people have been hospitalized and most of the reported illnesses occurred from mid-June to early July.
In Connecticut, the state Department of Public Health is investigating two cases that involve women who became ill in June. At least one woman was hospitalized after traveling internationally.
The Food and Drug Administration is investigating the cyclospora infections, which are most often found in tropical or subtropical countries and have been linked to imported fresh produce in the past.
The illness is usually spread when people ingest food or water contaminated with feces. The agency says it isn't yet clear whether the cases from all the states are linked.
Officials said it is unclear if the Connecticut cases are linked to the outbreak in other states.
It is unknown if the woman, who got sick, but did not travel out of the country, is connected to the outbreak.
The cause of the outbreak has not been determined.
