McDonalds will be the next to close its doors.
The fast food giant will be shuttered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as of the end of this month, according to The Lad’s own reports.
The chain was already in a legal battle with the city of Cincinnati over the closure.
According to The Los Angeles Times, McDonalds is seeking to reopen the restaurant in an undisclosed location in the Cincinnati suburbs.
The FDA has not commented on the chain’s plan for a legal defense.
As a result, the restaurant is likely to close by the end on March 14, 2018.
The Los Angles Times reports that the city is asking the FDA to set up a legal review committee to ensure that the restaurant will remain open.
The city is also asking the Food and Drug Administration to require the chain to reopen as soon as possible, the Times said.
McDonalds had a 2,000-square-foot store on a prime corner in Cincinnati, Ohio.
But the chain has struggled with a poor reputation, especially in the Midwest, due to its high sales, low prices and poor customer service.
McDonald’s had 1,000 outlets in the country when the outbreak began, but fewer than half of them have been reopened, according a 2014 report by the watchdog group Better Business Bureau.
The CDC estimates that McDonalds has served more than 2 million Americans infected with salmonella.
The outbreak has also affected other fast food chains such as Pizza Hut and Panera Bread.
According the CDC, 1 in 5 U., D.C., and D.O. residents has been infected with a salmonellosis-related illness, which includes foodborne illness.
