Attorneys File First Iowa McDonald’s Cyclospora Lawsuit in Multistate Outbreak

Attorneys at the law firm of Pritzker Hageman have filed the first Iowa McDonald’s cyclospora lawsuit on behalf of a client who was sickened after he ate at one of the fast food chain’s restaurants at 1220 Jeffreys Drive in Osceola, Iowa in late June, 2018. The law firm has also filed a complaint on behalf of a woman in Illinois who was sickened in the same outbreak. There is a large ongoing multistate cyclospora outbreak linked to McDonald’s salads.

McDonald's Cyclospora Lawsuit

Cyclospora attorneys Brendan Flaherty and Ryan Osterholm filed the complaint. The McDonald’s cyclospora lawsuit was filed in Iowa on July 18, 2018 in the Iowa District Court in Clarke County.

Food safety lawyer Ryan Osterholm said, “Our client has been ill and is suffering through no fault of his own. McDonald’s and other restaurants are legally obligated to sell food that will not make someone sick. The company has a duty to use ingredients and supplies that are reasonably safe and wholesome. Our client couldn’t work at a new job for two weeks because of this symptoms, and he is still suffering to this day.”

At least 163 people in 10 states are sick in this McDonald’s cyclospora outbreak. “This outbreak may still grow,” Brendan said. “The company’s salads have been recalled in 3000 McDonald’s locations across the country. And people are becoming aware of this outbreak and are being diagnosed.”

The FDA, CDC, and state officials are working with McDonald’s to figure out which component of the salads was contaminated with the microscopic parasite. The parasite is usually found in contaminated water and is endemic to tropical regions of the globe. However, there are usually one or more cyclospora outbreaks in the United States every summer and have been for at least five years.

If you have been sick with the symptoms of cyclosporiasis after eating a McDonald’s salad, which include explosive diarrhea, you may be part of this outbreak. See your doctor.
