This Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwich shop on 13th Street has been closed while the Boulder Department of Health investigates an E. coli outbreak. The exact source of the outbreak is not yet known. Health investigators don’t know if it started with an employee or from food at the restaurant, or a combination of both. Boulder health officials are meeting with Colorado State health officials to determine the exact cause of the outbreak that has sickened nearly a dozen Boulder residents, including at least four members of a University of Colorado sorority.
We too have been contacted by victims of this outbreak who all share a common link of eating food prepared by this restaurant. I will post the Health Department’s investigation as soon as I receive it.
