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

The McDonald’s cyclospora lawsuit was filed in Iowa on July 18, 2018 in the Iowa District Court in Clarke County.

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.
