Jimmy John's E. coli Outbreak in Denver Metro Area

Colorado public health officials believe a fresh produce item that was sold on sandwiches purchased from Jimmy John's is the source of the E. coli outbreak.

Sprouts served on Jimmy John's sandwiches have caused multiple E. coli and Salmonella outbreaks in the past.

For a time, Jimmy John's stopped serving sprouts on sandwiches due to the risk of foodborne pathogens. Other fresh produce items, such as lettuce and tomatoes have been identified as the source of E. coli or Salmonella outbreaks, as well.
