URBANA, ILL. — Tiny Greens Organic Farm has recalled alfalfa sprout and spicy sprout products that may be linked to a Salmonella outbreak that has sickened 94 throughout 16 states. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has been tracking the Salmonella outbreak, which has been linked to serotype I 4,[5],12:i: infections since Nov. 1.

Approximately half of the illnesses occurred in Illinois, where many of the ill individuals ate sandwiches containing sprouts at various Jimmy John’s outlets. Jimmy John’s restaurants have voluntarily suspended serving sprouts at their Illinois franchise locations, according to the C.D.C.

The Tiny Greens Organic Farm produces 16 types of sprouts, sunflower greens and wheatgrass.
