The Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) on Thursday said it was investigating a rise in Cyclospora infections, likely due to the consumption of a salad served by McDonald's Corp.

About a quarter of those who have fell ill say they had consumed McDonald's salads within days of suffering symptoms.

The department says McDonald's is also investigating and has been fully cooperating with health officials.

The parasite cyclospora is also involved in the recall of Del Monte Fresh vegetable trays, blamed for sickening more than 200 people in Iowa, Indiana, Minnesota and MI. McDonald's says it is in the process of removing these salads from its restaurants and distributions centers.

Public health officials in IL and Iowa have reported a spike in cases of cyclosporiasis, with at least 15 infections in Iowa and 90 others in IL.

A press release from the Iowa Department of Public Health added that McDonald's is working with health officials in their investigation.

The fast-food company also said it is removing its existing salad blend from about 3,000 of its outlets, a lot of them in the Midwest.

"Anyone who ate these salads since the middle of June and who developed diarrhea, especially watery diarrhea and fatigue, should see their health care provider and get tested for Cyclospora to ensure an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment", said Patricia Quinlisk, Iowa " s public health medical Director and epidemiologist.

He writes that cyclospora is linked to imported produce and not uncommon in the U.S. Other symptoms can include vomiting, headache, fever, and body aches.

Cyclospora can not be transmitted from one person to another, but only through consuming food or water infected with feces that contain the parasite. If not treated with antibiotics, it could last between a few days to a month or longer.

McDonald's said in an email it has been in contact with public health authorities from both states about an increase in Cyclospora infections.
