Taylor Farms resumes production after cyclospora outbreak
An FDA environmental health assessment of the company's processing faclities and farms found adequate food safety protocols.
Taylor Farms de Mexico, the lettuce producer linked to illnesses in Nebraska and Iowa after an outbreak of the parasite cyclospora, has reopened after being cleared by US food safety authorities. An FDA environmental health investigation performed between August 11 and 19 could not find evidence of contamination at the company's procesing facilities or farms.
A separate cyclospora outbreak in Texas is said to be unrelated, and an investigation into its cause is ongoing.
