(NBC NEWS) — Jimmy John's has removed sprouts from its menu.

The move comes after the food and drug administration sent a letter Tuesday linking several E. coli outbreaks to the restaurant chain.

The FDA said the outbreaks occurred in multiple states over the past seven years.

The president of Jimmy Johns said in a statement that the removal of sprouts was "out of an abundance of caution, and was not initiated by any known, immediate threat."
