Health officials in IL and Iowa say they've identified roughly 100 combined cases of cyclosporiasis apparently linked to consuming McDonald's salads. Since mid-May, it has sickened 15 people in Iowa, 29 in IL, and 10 others in Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota and Nebraska.

The Food and Drug Administration is working with McDonald's to identify the salad ingredients making people sick and trace them through the supply chain.

McDonalds has reportedly stopped selling salads at around 3,000 restaurants in the Midwest for the time being.

In Missouri, there have been seven cases that may be connected to the McDonald's salads. In Minnesota, there have been several cases and in Iowa there have been 15.

The cyclospora parasite is an intestinal illness.

"Anyone who ate these salads since the middle of June and who developed diarrhea, especially watery diarrhea and fatigue, should see their health care provider and get tested for Cyclospora to ensure an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment".

The Ministry of Emergency Management has sent a team to further investigate the cause of the explosion, the agency added. In 2015, a blast in a chemical warehouse in the northern port city of Tianjin left 165 people dead and multiple injured.

Iowa State Epidemiologist Patricia Quinlisk all 15 had eaten salads at McDonald's before becoming ill. "Vomiting, body aches, headache, fever, and other flu-like symptoms may be noted".

McDonald's said Friday it's voluntarily pulling salads from about 3,000 locations in 14 states, primarily in the Midwest, until it can switch to a different lettuce supplier. The illness is treated with antibiotics.

The CDC said as of Friday, it confirmed 227 cases of cyclosporiasis in people in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and MI who consumed now-recalled Del Monte vegetable trays.

"McDonald's is committed to the highest standards of food safety and quality control", McDonald's said in the statement, adding that it is cooperating with public health officials investigating the outbreak.

The parasite is also to blame for an outbreak in Texas, although officials have not yet identified what's making people sick there.
