A 132-case outbreak linked to basil is part of the nation's 580 lab-confirmed infections so far this year.
One of the notable developments for 2018 was a spike in Cyclospora cases, likely the result of multiple factors, the CDC said.
The outbreak has reached 156 cases, as 113,000 pounds of ground beef are recalled.
All 8 patients required hospitalization, and the earliest case dates back to 2016.
Thirteen people in 7 states have been sickened, and the manufacturer has issued a recall.
Case counts climb to 109, making it the 3rd-largest E coli outbeak in 20 years.
Patients range in age from 1 to 74 years, but at least half are children.

About 400 staffers have returned from furlough, 150 of them for food inspections.
As the outbreak grows to 59 cases, officials puzzle over why romaine and not other lettuce was tainted.
