The number of people who have gotten sick because of a parasite outbreak that hit Mcdonald's continues to grow. It can take people up to a week after ingesting the contaminated food to start feeling symptoms, and many cyclospora infections take weeks to manifest.
They include diarrhea and frequent, sometimes explosive bowel movements, according to the CDC.
An investigation by the FDA July 26 found Cyclospora in a sample of the Fresh Express salad mix, which prompted its recall. Vomiting, headache, fever, body aches and flu-like symptoms can also occur. Symptoms can last a few days or several months. McDonald's, based in Chicago's West Loop, said in July that it had removed the mix from impacted restaurants. The company supplied McDonald's in the Midwest with bags of mixed lettuce that had been tainted with cyclospora.
The statement said, "Fresh Express follows rigid food safety requirements and preventive controls throughout our supply chain that are carefully created to mitigate against potential health risks".

It's the same contamination that earlier this week led to a recall of salads and wraps sold by Trader Joe's, Walgreens and Kroger.
McDonald's released a statement on July 13 saying they had been in contact with public health officials notifying them about an increase in Cyclospora infections in Iowa and IL.
