McDonald’s To Halt Salad Sales In Minnesota

The FDA said the cyclospora infections are

While McDonald's has been unable to pinpoint the direct source of contamination, the chain is now looking for a new lettuce supplier for restaurants located in Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, South Dakota, Montana, North Dakota, Kentucky, Missouri, and West Virginia. Initial reports claimed that almost 100 people were sick after eating salads containing cyclospora, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has confirmed that more cases in new states-including Missouri, Wisconsin, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Minnesota-has led McDonald's to pull all salads from menus in 14 different states where the lettuce supply chain is at risk.

The Food and Drug Administration is working with McDonald's to identify the ingredients that may have made people sick.

More illnesses have been reported across the United States in two separate cyclospora outbreaks, federal health officials said Thursday.

Links to the illness are now being investigated in nine states, including Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

The illness is transmitted by the cyclospora parasite through food or water likely contaminated with faeces. Cyclospora infects the small intestine (bowel) and usually causes watery diarrhea, with frequent, sometimes explosive, bowel movements. Those infected can experience loss of appetite, weight loss, stomach cramps or pain, nausea, gas and fatigue. The sickness can last for up to a month if left untreated, much longer than those suffering from E. coli poisoning. Of those cases, 92 people reported eating salads from McDonald's in the days before becoming ill.

McDonald's said it stopped selling salads at impacted restaurants "until we can switch to another lettuce blend supplier".

Meanwhile, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported 237 cases of cyclosporiasis in people who reportedly consumed Del Monte Fresh vegetable trays containing broccoli, cauliflower, carrots and dill dip.

"McDonald's is committed to the highest standards of food safety and quality and we continue to cooperate and support regulatory and public health officials in their investigations", the company said. If you could be affected and notice symptoms, call your health care provider.

"We have removed lettuce blend provided by Fresh Express' Streamwood, Illinois, facility", the fast-food burger chain said in a statement Friday.
