Hundreds Sickened by Cyclospora Infections Linked to Bagged Salad Mix; Food4Patriots Responds with Recommendation to Stockpile Food for Emergencies

Share Article

Hundreds of people in 16 states were sickened in June and July by cyclospora infections. Food4Patriots suggests keeping good foods securely stored in case of an emergency.

The food in these emergency kits can be prepared in less than 20 minutes and require nothing more than boiling water.

According to Food Safety News, at least 378 people in 16 different states were sickened by cyclospora infections between early June and early July, 2013. The numbers, released by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, included 221 people in Iowa and Nebraska.

The illness in those two states was found to be part of the same outbreak linked to nationally distributed bagged salad mix. It has not yet been determined if the other 157 people were also sickened by the salad mix.

Food4Patriots, the supplier of emergency food suitable for long-term storage, survival and emergency preparedness, believes that an unanticipated crisis could result in food shortages, higher food prices and poorer food quality. The company launched a product line in July that includes 72-hour, four-week and three-month emergency food kits, selling more than 500,000 adult-sized servings of Food4Patriots survival food to concerned patriots within the first few weeks.

Natural disasters such as Hurricanes Katrina and Sandy have proven that people need to have plenty of food and water stockpiled for long-term emergencies, while tornados, wildfires, floods and other crises have illustrated that people also need short-term supplies of food and water.

The food in these emergency kits can be prepared in less than 20 minutes and require nothing more than boiling water. They’re kept in easy-to-store Mylar pouches, which keep out air, moisture and light. Shelf lives are up to 25 years.

Food4Patriots recommends stocking up on healthy foods that will carry people through an unanticipated crisis that could result in higher food prices, food shortages and poorer food quality. Among the nutritious foods that are part of the Food4Patriots’ 72-hour, four-week and three-month emergency kits are:

  •     Mountain Man Granola
  •     Apple Orchard Oatmeal
  •     Granny’s Homestyle Potato Soup
  •     Blue Ribbon Cheesy Chicken Rice
  •     Ol’ 49ers Hearty Chili
  •     Creamy Beef Stroganoff
  •     Frank’s Five-Star Minestrone.

Those who order one of the Food4Patriots Emergency Kits will also receive four reports: “Top 10 Items Sold Out After Crisis,” “The Water Survival Guide,” “The Survival Garden Guide” and “How to Cut Your Grocery Bills in Half.”

Patriot Headquarters publishes articles, videos and news to help patriots become more self-reliant and independent from government and big business.
