    Default Jimmy John's yanks sprouts from restaurants nationwide as the FDA accuses the chain..

    ....selling 'adulterated' food linked to illness outbreaks over a 7-year period

    I had no idea about this. I've never eaten there, but our daughter used to, with a friend. I thought they were some kind of sub shop? And what is "adulterated" sprouts and cucumbers???

    https://www.businessinsider.com/fda-...tbreaks-2020-2

    The Food and Drug Administration issued a warning letterto Jimmy John's last week that accused the restaurant chain of repeatedly selling vegetables linked to outbreaks of E. coli and salmonella.
    "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. "Jimmy John's has not demonstrated implementation of long-term sustainable corrections to its supply chain to assure the safety of ingredients used in its products."
    The FDA letter summarized evidence linking Jimmy John's to five illness outbreaks dating back to 2012. It accused Jimmy John's of engaging in a pattern of selling "adulterated fresh produce, specifically clover sprouts and cucumbers."
    "Taken together, these outbreaks, which spanned over the past seven years and impacted no fewer than seventeen states demonstrate the corporate-wide supplier control mechanisms you have in place for receiving fresh produce are inadequate," the letter said.
    Jimmy John's told Business Insider that it removed all sprouts from restaurants nationwide on Monday.
    The FDA letter demanded that Jimmy John's respond within 15 working days with "the specific things you are doing to address this violation."
    "Failure to promptly correct these violations may result in enforcement action by FDA without further notice, including seizure and/or injunction," the letter said.

    Most stores around here have stopped selling sprouts because of the link to E. coli and salmonella. Not sure what methodologies are used during the harvest or growing, but it's not just Jimmy Johns. Shame as I love sprouts on a sammich!

    ETA: clarification that I was agreeing rather than disagreeing. Because language hard.

    I hate Jimmy John. One of my favorite city chains, Lee's Hoagies, sold out to them. And their hoagies don't compare.

    Don't they do this every six months? I know someone who knows the owner of this place and the guy has a $60m yacht. It pisses me off because I've been making mediocre sandwiches in my house for years and yet...
