Now at least 275 cases of cyclospora have been confirmed; at least 10 people have been hospitalized.

Seven states have confirmed cases including Iowa, Nebraska, Texas, Wisconsin, Georgia, Connecticut and New Jersey.

So far, no cases have been reported in Oklahoma.

Doctors said it can last for weeks but it can be treated with antibiotics.
