Sandwich chain Jimmy John’s is in trouble with the Food and Drug Administration.

The FDA sent a warning letter to the company for food and safety violations. Jimmy John’s is accused of putting contaminated clover sprouts and cucumbers on sandwiches sold in Iowa in November and December 2019.

Twenty-two people reportedly got sick from eating the food.

Sprouts Unlimited Wholesale Foods also got a warning letter for supplying the sprouts to Jimmy John’s.

The FDA says the latest outbreak is part of a pattern for Jimmy John’s; evidence of five other cases was laid out in the warning letter.

In a statement released Tuesday, Jimmy John’s says sprouts have been removed from all restaurants until further notice.
