Yet another E. coli outbreak has been linked to contaminated clover sprouts sold at Jimmy John’s restaurants. This one has sickened 14 people in five states. Although this outbreak includes cases in Iowa, it is a separate outbreak from the Jimmy John’s clover sprouts E. coli outbreak that sickened 22 people in Iowa in December 2019.

The announcement of this clover sprouts E. coli outbreak comes one day after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration made public a warning letter to Jimmy John’s citing five outbreaks in the last seven years as evidence that the company has engaged in a pattern of receiving and selling adulterated fresh produce representing a company-wide failure of food safety controls.
