"We're not in a paper world anymore," says Greg Gatzke, President and CEO of ZAG Technical Services, countering the common misconception that there is a dividing line between the Salinas Valley and Silicon Valley.

Last week an article entitled “Outbreak Investigations of Cyclospora cayetanensis Infections 2013-2020: Progress Made and Challenges that Remain” was published in the April/May issue of Food Safety Magazine.

The article’s main discussion points include common challenges encountered during outbreaks of Cyclosporiasis, successes and breakthroughs, sample findings and how to address future outbreaks. The authors note that recurring outbreaks of cyclosporiasis underscore the need for a comprehensive understanding of how Cyclospora cayetanensis contaminates water and produce.
