FDA and CDC investigate E. coli O103 outbreak in Clover Sprouts

The FDA has released an update on the E. coli O103 outbreak likely linked to clover sprouts. The current warning recommends that consumers not eat Chicago Indoor Garden red clover sprouts, sprouts salad, mixed greens, and spring salad. The FDA, along with CDC and state and local partners, are investigating an outbreak of 14 illnesses caused by E. coli O103 in Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Texas, and Utah likely linked to clover sprouts. E. coli O103 was found in some of these products, and the FDA's analysis of a sample of this firm's product identified the presence of E. coli O103. Whole Genome Sequencing of this bacteria showed that it matches the outbreak strain. The last illness onset date was February 11, 2020. The update did not mention Jimmy John's outlets as it did in the February 26, 2020 update. @ https://www.fda.gov/food/outbreaks-foodborne-illness/outbreak-investigation-e-coli-o103-clover-sprouts-february-2020?utm_campaign=OutbreakAlert_ChicagoIndoorGardenCloverSprouts_03132020&utm_medium=email&utm_source=Eloqua
