There have been many stories in the last year or so about contamination of bean sprouts. Both e. coli and salmonella have been found in what is usually considered a health food.
If you’re a fan of Jimmy Johns sandwiches and you like sprouts on your order, you’ll have to cross that item off your list. The sandwich fast-food chain has decided to drop all sprouts from it’s menus. The chain had tried different kinds of sprouts, but has now concluded that the bad publicity associated with sprouts is just more than what the sandwich shops can bear.
So, instead, make your own sandwiches at home. But skip the sprouts.
