The Jimmy John's restaurant chain is permanently dropping sprouts from its menu after a five-state string of e. coli outbreaks. The outbreaks were the fifth occurrance of e.coli for the chain since 2008.

From a story in FoodSafetyNews:

While there has been no public comment by Jimmy John's since the outbreak was announced Feb. 15,  a Kirkville, Mo., franchise owner says "Jimmy himself" has ordered all sprouts permanently removed from the menu.

"Jimmy decided he was tired of the negative press from it and he thinks sprouts aren't necessary for Jimmy John's to rock," franchise owner Will Aubuchon told the Daily Express in Kirksville, Mo.

Jason's Deli also has dropped sprouts for the balance of 2012 because of food safety concerns.
