Starbucks Recalls Sandwich Due to E. Coli Concerns

1 minute read

Starbucks has recalled its holiday turkey panini from more than 1,000 locations upon discovering that an ingredient in the sandwich has been linked to an E. coli outbreak.

Celery from Taylor Farms Pacific Inc. in Tracy, Calif., which the U.S. Food and Drug Administration believes caused an E. coli outbreak among Costco customers, is also used in the coffee chain’s sandwiches, the Los Angeles Times reports.

A Starbucks spokesperson told Bloomberg that the sandwich was recalled from certain stores in California, Oregon and Nevada and that no cases of the illness have been traced back to Starbucks so far.

19 cases across seven states have been connected to celery-onion blend from Taylor Farms Pacific that was used in a Costco rotisserie chicken salad.
