ATLANTA -

More than 250 people in Georgia and five other states have come down with a stomach bug that may be linked to foodborne illness, according to the CDC.

The Centers for Disease Control said in a statement that as of July 22, the cyclospora infection causing diarrhea and other flu-like symptoms had been reported in Iowa, Nebraska, Texas, Wisconsin, Georgia and Connecticut.

Illinois and Kansas have also notified the agency of one case each that may have been acquired out of state but in the United States.

The CDC said 10 people have been hospitalized and most of the reported illnesses occurred from mid-June to early July.
