5 ill after eating sprouts at Wisconsin Jimmy John's

A multi-state Salmonella outbreak is being tied to sprouts used on Jimmy John's sandwiches.

If you frequently attend Jimmy John's restaurants in IL, here's a safety note you may want to know.

All Jimmy John's restaurants in IL have been asked to stop serving sprouts after health officials traced them to an outbreak of salmonella. It's not clear which Wisconsin locations those people ate at.

The Center for Disease Control and Prevention reported the most recent illness began January 3 and that no hospitalizations or deaths have been reported.

Two of the cases have affected IL residents who fell ill on December 20 and December 26.

The Illinois Department of Public Health along with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Food and Drug Administration and other state and local health departments, are investigating a recent cluster of Salmonella infections.

The IDPH has requested that Jimmy John's restaurants in IL remove sprouts from their menu during the investigation.

Salmonella symptoms include abdominal cramping, diarrhea, vomiting and fever, although not all may be present, according to DHS. They determined the sprouts were the most likely culprit.

Jimmy John's announced on Friday that it had directed all locations across the U.S. to temporarily stop serving sprouts "as a precautionary measure". Sprouts at the Champaign-based chain also were linked to an E. coli outbreak in 2008. Symptoms usually appear six to 72 hours after eating the tainted food, but symptoms can appear later, as well.
