In the lawsuit, 33-year-old Idaho resident Honey Sayler’s lawyer states both Scharf and Jimmy John’s have been linked to sprout-borne illness outbreaks in the past.

A 2011 salmonella outbreak was linked to Evergreen, but FDA tests did not show contamination at the growing operation. At that time the company was owned by Scharf’s mother, who refused to recall her product.

Five foodborne illness outbreaks linked to sprouts served at Jimmy John’s restaurants are documented, according to the lawsuit, including two outbreaks in 2010 and one outbreak in each of 2008, 2009 and 2012.
