An outbreak of cyclospora linked to McDonald's salads has sickened at least 61 people in seven states, federal health officials said Friday.

Cases of people infected by the Cyclospora parasite, believed to have originated from ingesting lettuce in McDonald's salads, have spread to another four states-Wisconsin, Nebraska, South Dakota, and Minnesota.

McDonald's has stopped selling salads at some 3,000 locations across the country amid a multi-state parasite outbreak that has sickened dozens of customers.

The symptoms, which can begin a week or more after consuming the parasite, include diarrhea and frequent, sometimes explosive bowel movements, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

IL reported 90 cases since mid-May while Iowa had 15 cases since late June.

Cyclospora cayetanensis is a parasite that can contaminate food and water through feces. "Vomiting, body aches, headache, fever, and other flu-like symptoms may be noted".

"This is one where you get sick, maybe feel a little bit better for a while and you think it's gone". The CDC says most people with healthy immune systems will recover from Cyclospora infection without treatment, though health officials recommend anyone with diarrhea that has lasted more than three days to contact a health care provider. Patients can be treated with antibiotics.

"Out of an abundance of caution, we made a decision to voluntarily stop selling salads at impacted restaurants until we can switch to another lettuce blend supplier", the email said.

Officials with the fast-food restaurant chain said in a statement Friday that the salads have been removed from "impacted restaurants", mainly in the Midwest, "out of an abundance of caution" until it can find a new supplier.

The CDC said as of Friday, it confirmed 227 cases of cyclosporiasis in people in Iowa, Minnesota, Wisconsin and MI who consumed now-recalled Del Monte vegetable trays.
