FDA accuses Jimmy John's of serving vegetables linked to E. coli and salmonella outbreaks

Source: CNN

The US Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning letter to the Jimmy John's sandwich chain, saying certain vegetables it served were implicated in five outbreaks of E. coli or salmonella in the past seven years.

The letter accuses the chain of engaging in a pattern of receiving and selling "adulterated fresh produce, specifically clover sprouts and cucumbers."

"Jimmy John's restaurants have been implicated in multiple outbreaks that have spanned the past seven years and impacted consumers in no fewer than 17 states," FDA Deputy Commissioner Frank Yiannas said in a news release Tuesday.

The FDA letter says Jimmy John's should respond with the "the specific things you are doing to address this violation" within 15 days of receiving the warning letter.

2. It is now.

A few years ago, didn't they have some kind of unfair labor lawsuit? They weren't paying workers or cheating them on their time cards. Sounds like they don't want to stay in business with all this bad press..

6. No. If it happened 5x, it's a pattern. Despite FDA administrators, good gov't people still work

13. There are images of his canned elephant hunts. 🐘.

From his wiki-"Liautaud is an avid hunter and fisherman. In an interview in 2015 with the Chicago Tribune, Liautaud said that the largest misconception about him is that people still connect him to photos of him posing with big game from 10 years ago. According to Liautaud, he used to hunt big game in Africa on legally organized safaris, but he no longer does.[7] Starting in 2015, his hunting prompted people to call for a boycott of his business...
