Last month, news broke that over 100 people in Iowa and IL had gotten sick due to a parasite found in McDonald's salads. Hundreds report possible illness after eating at OH restaurant; Lawsuit filedAt least 16 people have been hospitalized due to the Cyclospora parasite, which causes intestinal illness. A week later, that number jumped to 163 sick individuals in 10 states, with three hospitalizations. So far, 16 of these cases have been severe to the point of hospitalization. In response, McDonald's has stopped selling salads in 3,000 USA restaurants until they can replace their lettuce supplier. Symptoms can begin a week or more after consuming the parasite.

Fresh Express, based in Salinas, California, supplied bagged salad mixes likely tainted with cyclospora to McDonald's franchises in the Midwest, the FDA said.

According to the CDC, symptoms of a cyclospora infection include diarrhea, with frequent - sometimes explosive - bowel movements, loss of appetite, weight loss, fatigue, stomach cramps/pain, bloating, increased gas, and nausea. The illness can last anywhere from several days to a few months and can be treated with antibiotics.
