McDonald’s Cyclospora Outbreak Sickens 61 in IA, IL, MN, MO, NE, SD, WI; Lawsuits Possible

A McDonald’s cyclospora outbreak that is “likely linked” to the fast food chain’s salads has sickened at lest 61 people in 7 states. Two people have been hospitalized because they are so sick. This outbreak is probably not linked to the other current cyclospora outbreak linked to recalled Del Monte Vegetable trays that has sickened 227 people in the upper Midwest, but public health officials are investigating.

McDonald's Cyclospora Outbreak

The FDA is working with McDonald’s to identify the common ingredient in the salads and to conduct traceback investigations through the supply chain. As of July 13, 2018, McDonald’s is voluntarily ending sales of salads at restaurants in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota, Montana, North Dakota, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Missouri. They are switching to another salad supplier.

People who are sick in this McDonald’s cyclospora outbreak live in Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. Multiple components of the salad are being investigated as the possible vehicles for this parasite. Anyone who consumed salads from McDonald’s in those states could have been exposed to this parasite.

If you think you may be part of this McDonald’s cyclospora outbreak, call lawyer Fred Pritzker at 1-888-377-8900 or 612-338-0202.

Food safety attorney Fred Pritzker, who is representing many patients in the Del Monte cyclospora outbreak, said, “This outback may grow simply because so many people may have been exposed to the parasite. McDonald’s restaurants are ubiquitous throughout the country; they sell so many salads every day.”

The symptoms of a cyclospora infection include explosive, frequent bowel movements, increased gas, nausea, fatigue, weight loss, stomach cramps and pain, and bloating. Some people also experience fever, headache, body aches, and vomiting. If not treated, this illness can last for months and relapses often occur.

If you have been sick with these symptoms and have eaten a salad from the fast food chain recently, you may be part of this McDonald’s cyclospora outbreak. See your doctor for diagnosis and treatment.
