Tainted McDonalds Salads Sicken Nearly 300 People In 15 States

The Center For Disease Control (CDC) warned consumers that hundreds of people have been sickened in 15 states after eating salads at McDonalds restaurants.

The illness has been linked to salad greens contaminated with Cyclospora. Symptoms from Cyclospora infections can manifest as long as a week after being exposed. Symptoms are similar to a severe stomach flu and should be treated by a healthcare professional. Typical treatment includes antibiotics.

As of July 26th 2018 286 cases have been reported and 11 people have had to be hospitalized.

It's reported that McDonalds CEO Steve Easterbrook has told USA Today that all the salads that possibly could be tainted have been removed from restaurants and he’s proud of how the chain quickly reacted to the outbreak.” In fact, “as of three days ago, all affected restaurants had been fully replenished with a new supply of lettuce mix...Easterbrook said.”

Despite the reports of McDonalds quick action to remedy the problem we recommend avoiding consuming salads from McDonalds until the product can be confirmed safe – the sickness induced by the Cyclospora parasite is VERY unpleasant and can incapacitate the infected for weeks.



Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
