KOOTENAI COUNTY, Idaho.-- A North Idaho woman filed a lawsuit against Jimmy John’s and an Idaho sprouts farm in May after she ate sprouts contaminated with E. coli.
Health officials linked eight cases of E. coli in Washington and Idaho to sprouts from Evergreen Fresh Sprouts near Moyie Springs, Idaho. The FBI launched an investigation into the outbreak.
The lawsuit filer, Honey Sayler, said she got sick after eating a sandwich with sprouts at a Jimmy John’s restaurant.
Sayler sought damages for physical and mental pain as well as suffering.
