Seven people have been sickened in an E. coli outbreak at Evergreens restaurants in Seattle. One person was hospitalized. Customers developed symptoms of an E. coli infection after eating meals purchased from four Evergreens locations between November 5 – 11, 2019.
Those locations are:
- Downtown (823 3rd Ave, Seattle)
- International District (504 5th Ave S, Seattle)
- Pioneer Square (106 1st Ave S, Seattle)
- University District (4609 Village Ter NE, Seattle)
Health officials investigating the outbreak visited all four locations to collect evidence and “did not observe any behavioral risk or environmental factors associated with the spread or proliferation of E. coli bacteria.”
Several of the patients sickened in this outbreak said they had eaten raw vegetables, including leafy greens, from sources other than Evergreens before they got sick. There is currently a multistate E. coli outbreak linked to romaine lettuce grown in Salinas, CA. But the King County health department says genetic tests on isolates collected from four of the Evergreens patients do not match the multistate outbreak strain. Results on the other three Evergreens isolates are pending.
