July 12 (Reuters) - The Iowa and Illinois health departments said on Thursday that they were investigating cyclospora infections linked to salads at McDonald Corp's restaurants. McDonald ' s shares fell 1.4 percent after-hours on Thursday.

The parasite, cyclospora cayetanensis, infects the small intestine, typically causing watery diarrhea and frequent, sometimes explosive bowel movements. It is spread by ingesting food or water contaminated with feces and not directly from one person to another.

Several outbreaks have occurred in the United States in the past several years, especially during the summer months, that had been linked to imported fresh produce including raspberries, basil, snow peas, and lettuce.

The health departments said McDonald’s was removing salads from its restaurants and distribution centers and was re-supplying restaurants with salads from other suppliers.

Illinois Health Department director Nirav Shah said the agency would continue to investigate the outbreak.
