The foodborne outbreak linked to McDonald's salads is growing and has now sickened 436 people in 16 states, including CT, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Illnesses have been reported in 15 states: Connecticut, Florida, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wisconsin.

The cyclospora parasite causes intestinal illness in people who consumed contaminated food or water.

Cyclosporiasis is a non-fatal infection and the most common symptom is watery diarrhea, according to the Centers for Disease Control. According to the Centers for Disease Control, "Romaine lettuce from the same lot that was positive for cyclospora was distributed in pre-made salads and wraps distributed by Caito Foods LLC of Indianapolis". Those who are infected might also experience loss of appetite, weight loss, stomach cramps or pain, nausea, gas, and fatigue. "Vomiting, body aches, headache, fever, and other flu-like symptoms may be noted".

Forty-one people have been sickened from McDonald's salads contaminated with a parasite a week after the last update, raising the total number of illnesses to more than 400. The illness is treated with antibiotics. Connecticut, Tennessee and Virginia residents bought salads while in IL.

Last month, the FDA completed analysis of an unused package of romaine lettuce and carrot mix distributed to McDonald's by the Fresh Express processor in Streamwood, Ill., which confirmed the presence of the microscopic parasite Cyclospora in that mix.

McDonald's voluntarily stopped selling salads in more than 3,000 locations throughout the country on July 13, until it can switch to another lettuce-blend supplier. The products were sold by grocery stores including Kroger, Trader Joe's and Walgreens. The FDA and CDC say it's not related to the concurrent Del Monte vegetable tray cyclospora outbreak hitting some of the same states.
