McDonald's Salads Are Now Linked to 395 Illnesses in 15 States

Illinois, where McDonald's is headquartered, has the most: 202.

The FDA noted that ill patients from Connecticut, Tennessee and Virginia purchased salads while traveling in IL, and that the Florida patient purchased a salad in Kentucky. They have "Best by", "Enjoy by", "Best if sold by", or "Sell by" dates ranging from July 18 through July 23, according to the CDC.

Almost 400 people in 15 states have now been sickened by a parasite infection linked to McDonald's salads.

Seventh person dies as northern California wildfires spread

Sixteen people have been hospitalized, but there have been no fatalities, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported.

While the FDA linked the illnesses to the Cyclospora parasite - a foodborne contamination associated with fecal matter - Fresh Express, based in Salinas, California, is now also on the hook. Vomiting, headache, fever, body aches and flu-like symptoms can also occur.

Health officials have confirmed 395 cases of cyclospora infection from salad mixes sold at the fast-food chain, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said in an update late Thursday. The company supplied McDonald's in the Midwest with bags of mixed lettuce that had been tainted with cyclospora.

The FDA is reviewing supplier information for romaine lettuce and carrots. Fresh Express said in a statement that it initiated a precautionary recall July 27.
