  • Salmonella Cases in Illinois Traced to Jimmy John's Sprouts

Sandwich restaurant Jimmy John's is temporarily removing sprouts from its sandwiches at all locations due to complaints of sickness.

"Food safety and the welfare of our customers are our top priorities and not negotiable in our business", said James North, president and CEO.

After eating sprouts at Jimmy John's restaurants three more people in neighboring state Minnesota and IL are infected by the same bacteria. In 2010, 2012 and 2014, the sprouts that needed warm and humid conditions to grow making it conducive to bacteria growth, were linked to salmonella. While the results of the investigation are not conclusive and we are still gathering more information, we have voluntarily directed all franchisees to remove sprouts as a precautionary measure from all supply and distribution. The other two guests ate at Illinois Jimmy John's location around the same time period and one person ate at Minnesota location, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Two Illinois residents became ill on December 20 and 26.

Officials said they believe the source of the Salmonella cases were from sprouts from multiple Jimmy John's locations.
