Jimmy John’s Faces U.S. Probe Over E.coli Outbreak


U.S. officials warned of a new E.coli outbreak linked to Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches, the latest in a string of food-safety problems at the sandwich chain in recent years.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said Wednesday that they are investigating an outbreak of E. coli O103 that they said was likely tied to clover sprouts served at Jimmy John’s restaurants. Fourteen people from five states have been reported to have fallen ill in the outbreak, the agencies said.
