No new E. coli cases in Washington from outbreak

OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) — The Washington state Health Department says there have been no new cases of E. coli linked to ready-to-eat salads and sandwiches made by a California company and sold through Trader Joe’s.

Spokesman Tim Church says officials hope there won’t be more than the three cases initially reported in Washington. Nearly two-dozen were reported in California.

The USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service says Glass Onion Catering of Richmond, Calif., recalled more than 90 tons of salads and sandwiches that were produced between Sept. 23 and Nov. 6.
