According to a Food Safety Alert from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least 14 E. coli 0103 infections have been linked to potentially tainted clover sprouts in Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Texas and Utah. Epidemiological evidence gathered by the CDC suggests that the likely source of these sprouts was Jimmy John's restaurants.
CDC recommends that anyone who has eaten clover sprouts on a sandwich from Jimmy John's and later experienced symptoms of food poisoning contact their doctor immediately. Signs and symptoms of E. coli include stomach cramps, diarrhea, fever, nausea, and/or vomiting.
A spokesperson for Jimmy John's said that all of its restaurants stopped serving clover sprouts on February 24, 2020. At this time, clover sprouts should not be available at Jimmy John’s.
