McDonald’s removing salads from 3,000 stores after illness

In about a quarter of the IL cases, people reported eating salads from McDonald's in the days before they became ill, officials said.

In its own news release Thursday, the Iowa Department of Public Health said 15 Iowans who ate McDonald's salads in late June to early July became ill.

IL has reported 90 cases since mid-May.

While finding a link to salads sold at McDonald's in about a quarter of the IL cases, the state is also looking into other possible sources for the contamination, Shah added. One quarter of patients with the parasitic illness had eaten a McDonald's salad prior to showing symptoms of the illness, according to IL officials.

The most common symptom is watery diarrhea.

"Although a link has been made to salads sold in McDonald " s restaurants in some IL cases, public health officials continue to investigate other sources", said IL public health director Nirav Shah.

Officials say the fast-food company has been fully cooperating with the investigation and McDonald's and involved federal partners are determining what further steps should be taken.

McDonald's released the following statement: "McDonald's has been in contact with public health authorities from Iowa and IL about an increase in Cyclospora infections in those states".

The chain says it's in the process of removing these salads from its restaurants and distribution centers.

The illnesses are not concentrated in a specific part of IL, but spread across several counties, state public health officials said. People may also experience vomiting, body aches, headache, low-grade fever, and other flu-like symptoms. Officials say they will resume salad sales there once they change suppliers. Left untreated, the illness "may last for a few days to a month or longer", according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

McDonald's said in an email it has been in contact with public health authorities from both states about an increase in Cyclospora infections.
