Salmonella Sprouts Linked To Urbana

Posted by wlpo on December 28, 2010

WASHINGTON (AP) – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is advising the public not to eat alfalfa sprouts produced by the Tiny Greens Organic Farm in Urbana because of possible salmonella contamination.

The warning issued Monday evening also includes a mix called Spicy Sprouts, which also contains radish and clover
sprouts.  The sprouts were distributed ito various customers, including farmers’ markets, restaurants and groceries, in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri and possibly other Midwestern states.

The FDA says preliminary results of the investigation of a multistate outbreak of salmonella infections indicate a link to
Tiny Greens alfalfa sprouts served in sandwiches at Jimmy John’s.
