During a routine sampling, workers found the microscopic parasite cyclospora cayetanensis, which can cause an intestinal illness called cyclosporiasis.

No illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported. Symptoms include loss of appetite, weight loss, nausea, diarrhea and fatigue.

The illness is usually not life-threatening, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
