FDA Issues Warning Letter to Jimmy John’s

Most of us enjoy the convenience of fast food, and how easy it can be to grab a bite to eat. We also appreciate when our food is prepared well and tastes as good as we expect. We don’t like to be inconvenienced when it comes to our fast food. Unfortunately, there are times where the convenience of fast food can bring unwanted consequences.

One of the most famous fast food sandwich shops, Jimmy John’s, has recently received a warning letter from the US Food and Drug Administration. The letter accuses the chain of engaging in a pattern of receiving and selling “adulterated fresh produce, specifically clover sprouts and cucumbers.” These vegetables were implicated in seven outbreaks of E. coli or salmonella in the past seven years.

According to the FDA, Jimmy John’s has been implicated in multiple outbreaks over the past seven years and have impacted customers in at least 17 states. Jimmy John’s has stated that they are removing all sprouts from their restaurants until further notice. The FDA also sent a warning letter to the supplier of Jimmy John’s produce.
