  • 163 sick across 10 states in outbreak linked to McDonald's salads

The organization is advising people who have eaten a salad from a McDonald's restaurant in Iowa, Illinois, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, or Wisconsin since mid-May and have become sick to see a healthcare provider.

You can contact attorneys Brendan Flaherty and Ryan Osterholm for help with this McDonald's cyclospora outbreak at 612-338-0202 or 1-888-377-8900. McDonald's, in a newsroom bulletin to the public, stated: "We are in the process of removing existing lettuce blend from identified restaurants and distribution centers - which includes approximately 3,000 of our USA restaurants primarily located in the Midwest".

In less than a week, the number of cases of reported illness from eating McDonald's salads rose from 61 to 163.

McDonald's salads have been linked to 163 "laboratory-confirmed" cases of cyclosporiasis across 10 US states, according to the Centers for Disease Control.

Three people have been admitted to hospital, according to the CDC, which is investigating the outbreak of cyclosporiasis in conjunction with the US Food and Drug Administration and state health officials.

Following initial reports of the outbreak, McDonald's said it was voluntarily removing salads from some locations and distribution centers "out of an abundance of caution", with plans to restock restaurants with salads from other suppliers. No deaths have been reported.

Victims of Cyclosporiasis usually begin to experience symptoms within a week, according to the CDC.

Another cyclosporiasis outbreak has been linked to Del Monte vegetable trays, but the FDA says there is no evidence that the two are related.

The symptoms of a cyclospora infection include explosive and watery diarrhea that can recur, loss of appetite, weight loss, abdominal pain, nausea, fatigue, and increased gas. It is an intestinal sickness caused by a microscopic parasite called Cyclospora cayetanensis. Additionally, they are often met with headaches, fevers, and other "flu-like symptoms". If not treated, the illness may last from a few days to a month or longer.

Cyclosporiasis is not likely able to be passed directly from one person to another. "Some people who are infected with Cyclospora do not have any symptoms".

The investigation is ongoing and FDA is working to determine the source of the ingredients used in the salads served at McDonald's.
