395 people sickened in McDonald’s salad outbreak

Last month, news broke that over 100 people in Iowa and IL had gotten sick due to a parasite found in McDonald's salads. The illness is caused by the Cyclospora parasite, commonly associated with contamination from feces.

Sixteen people have been hospitalized, but there have been no fatalities, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported. In response, McDonald's has stopped selling salads in 3,000 US restaurants until they can replace their lettuce supplier.

The FDA noted that ill patients from Connecticut, Tennessee and Virginia purchased salads while traveling in IL, and that the Florida patient purchased a salad in Kentucky. The most common symptom is watery diarrhea, although patients might also experience a loss of appetite, weight loss, cramping, nausea, and fatigue. Symptoms can last a few days or several months.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) confirmed the presence of Cyclospora in an unused package of Fresh Express salad mix distributed to McDonald's in late July.

Fresh Express used recall procedures to inform companies about the romaine lettuce and McDonald's has stopped selling salads at impacted restaurants in the following states: IL, IA, IN, WI, MI, OH, MN, NE, SD, MT, ND, KY, WV, and MO.

The FDA said the investigation into the outbreak is ongoing, and that the agency "is now reviewing distribution and supplier information for romaine and carrots".
