About E Coli O157:H7

FSIS cautions that “E. coli O157:H7 is a potentially deadly bacterium that can cause dehydration, bloody diarrhea and abdominal cramps 2–8 days (3–4 days, on average) after exposure the organism. While most people recover within a week, some develop a type of kidney failure called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS). This condition can occur among persons of any age but is most common in children under 5-years old and older adults. It is marked by easy bruising, pallor, and decreased urine output. Persons who experience these symptoms should seek emergency medical care immediately.”

February 27, 2020: Jimmy John’s E. coli Outbreak Linked to Clover Sprouts

Jimmy John’s E. coli Outbreak News – The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), state public health officials, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are investigating a multi-state outbreak of E. coli O103 infections linked to clover sprouts served by Jimmy John’s restaurants.

Jimmy John’s E. Coli Outbreak Information

The CDC reported on February 26, 2020, that 14 people across fives states have been infected with the outbreak strain of E. coli O103. The agency documented the number of Jimmy John’s E. coli outbreak cases by state as follows: Illinois (6), Iowa (3), Missouri (1), Texas (1), and Utah (3).  Illness onset dates ranged from January 6, 2020 to February 11, 2020, and no hospitalizations or deaths were reported.

Available information indicates that clover sprouts, served by Jimmy John’s restaurants, are a likely source of this current E. coli outbreak.  Jimmy John’s LLC reported that all of its restaurants stopped serving clover sprouts on February 24, 2020.  Public health investigators are working to trace the source of the clover sprouts served at the Jimmy John’s restaurants where the outbreak victims ate, and to determine whether other restaurants or retailers received the same clover sprouts. 

CDC Advice For Consumers

The CDC remains concerned that people who ate clover sprouts from a Jimmy John’s restaurant before February 24, 2020, could develop an E. coli infection.  The following advice is provided by the CDC to help protect consumers:

  • If you have leftovers with clover sprouts from Jimmy John’s, don’t eat them. Throw the leftovers away.
  • Talk to your healthcare provider if you have symptoms of an E. coli infection. Symptoms often include severe stomach cramps, diarrhea (often bloody), and vomiting, and may begin 2- 8 days after swallowing the germ.  Symptoms usually last 5-7 days.
  • Report your illness to your local health department. Assist public health investigators by answering questions about your illness.
  • Wash your hands thoroughly after using the toilet, and before and after preparing food to lower the chance of infecting others.

The Jimmy John’s E. coli outbreak investigation is ongoing. CDC will provide updates when more information becomes available.
