McDonald’s cyclospora attorneys at Pritzker Hageman have filed a lawsuit against the fast food chain on behalf of a woman who was sickened after eating a Southwest Chicken Salad from the restaurant located at 400 East Plaza Drive in Carterville, Illinois. The lawsuit was filed in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois.

McDonald's Cyclospora Attorneys

Their client would regularly order that salad from McDonald’s. On or about June 25, 2018, she began suffering from stomach pain, headaches, nausea, and diarrhea. Her symptoms soon became debilitating and she sought medical help. Her illness was not immediately diagnosed, because doctors rarely order tests for this tropical parasitical infection in the United States.

Her symptoms continued, so she went to the doctor again. This time, a stool sample tested positive for the tropical parasite. A sample was sent to the Illinois Department of Helath, and investigators confirmed that she is part of the multistate cyclospora outbreak linked to McDonald’s salads. As a result of this infection, she has suffered physical and emotional injury, including pain and suffering, lost wages, and medical expenses.

The symptoms of cyclosporiasis include watery and explosive diarrhea, loss of appetite, weight loss, nausea, fatigue, dehydration, and fever. Symptoms can last for months and can recur if this infection is not diagnosed and treated.

The multistate cyclospora outbreak that is linked to McDonald’s salads has sickened at least 61 people in seven states. If you have eaten at McDonald’s in the past month and have been sick with the symptoms of cyclosporiasis, contact your doctor. You may be part of this McDonald’s cyclospora outbreak.
