Of the 90 people infected with the Cyclospora parasite in IL, one-quarter reported eating a McDonald's salad, health officials revealed. "Approximately one-fourth of IL cases reported eating salads from McDonald's in the days before they became ill", the health department said in a statement.

In both states, reports of people becoming ill began in May.

Since mid-May, cases have been reported in counties across IL, the health department statement said.

At the same time, public health officials in IL and in have reported that a number of cases there have been linked to the salads at McDonald's.

It added that anyone who developed diarrhea and fatigue after consuming a McDonald's salad should contact a health official immediately.

"This week [the Iowa Department of Public Health] has identified 15 Iowans who ate McDonald's salads in late June to early July prior to getting ill", Patricia Quinlisk, medical director of the state health department, said in a statement.

Ryanair Cabin Crew Issue Demands
Unless the airline reach a resolution with their full-time pilots before next Wednesday, the industrial action will go ahead. The consequences of a Ryanair strike and the resulting flight cancellations could be very significant for Spain.

The fast food chain is fully cooperating with the state health departments, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Food and Drug Administration investigation. Although it's unknown exactly how food and water become infected with Cyclospora, people should be aware that rinsing or washing food is not likely to remove it. Other symptoms include stomach cramps, nausea, fatigue and fever. "This summer there have been several clusters of Cyclospora illness associated with various foods that are commercially available", a statement from the Iowa Department of Public Health said.

The fast-food company also said it is removing its existing salad blend from about 3,000 of its outlets, majority in the Midwest.

The parasite, Cyclospora cayetanensis, infects the small intestine, typically causing watery diarrhea and frequent, sometimes explosive bowel movements.

McDonald's said about 3,000 outlets, mostly in the Midwest, were affected and "out of an abundance of caution" it was removing salads from those store until it could replace them with stock from other suppliers. If not treated, the illness may last for a few days to a month or longer.

Of course McDonald's is far from the only restaurant to be plagued by food-related illnesses; Chipotle Mexican Grill (CMG) was hit with repeated health scares, and while the stock has risen almost 60% year to date, it's still down from its 2015 highs.
