The U.S. Food and Drug Administration carried out the tests after a six-week-old baby in Minnesota became ill.

Cryptosporidium, which causes the illness cryptosporidiosis, is a parasite that lives in the intestines of infected people or animals and is excreted in feces. Infection, therefore, is the fecal to oral route.

Symptoms of cryptosporidiosis may include stomach cramps or pain, watery diarrhea (the most common symptom), fever, nausea, vomiting, dehydration, malaise, malnutrition and weight loss (in more severe cases). Symptoms may occur from one to 10 days after infection and will last for approximately two weeks in healthy individuals.
