Woman Says She Caught Cyclospora from C.R. Restaurant


By Katie Stinson

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Women from Iowa and Nebraska have filed lawsuits against the company that owns Olive Garden restaurants, saying they became sick after eating at the business.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/17urcr8 ) federal court documents show Kelly Kunc of Hiawatha, Iowa, and Joyce Nendza of Holt County, Neb., filed the lawsuits.

Minneapolis lawyer Ryan Osterholm, who filed the suits, says Kunc ate an Olive Garden in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

He says Nendza ate at a Sioux City, Iowa, Olive Garden.

The suits were filed again Orlando-based Darden Restaurants, which owns both Olive Garden and Red Lobster restaurants.

The Food and Drug Administration blamed an outbreak of severe stomach illnesses in Iowa and Nebraska on salad served at the restaurants and supplied by a Mexican farm.

A Darden spokesman declined to comment.
