E. coli Outbreak
In 2009, Olive Garden restaurants received steak that was later recalled by National Steak and Poultry due to possible E. coli O157:H7 contamination.
The December 2009 steak recall was prompted by an E. coli outbreak linked to the recalled steak that sickened at least 21 people in California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Iowa, Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, and Washington. E. coli O157 can lead to hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP) and death.
In the spring of 2005, an E. coli O157:H7 outbreak was associated with eating at an Olive Garden in Multnomah County, Oregon. According to the Multnomah County Health Department, no one food was strongly implicated in the outbreak that affected at least 18 people. An Olive Garden lawsuit was filed and quickly settled.
