A University Hill sandwich shop was closed Wednesday after Boulder County Public Health linked an outbreak of E. coli to the restaurant.

Jimmy John's, 1125 13th St., was temporarily shut down as a precautionary measure after the health department determined several people who contracted E. coli ate at the restaurant. Chana Goussetis, spokeswoman for the health department, said the county isn't sure if the restaurant is the source of the E. coli.

Last week, the health department investigated a cluster of eight E. coli cases at the University of Colorado. Of the eight cases, seven were CU students and one was a sorority adviser. Most of the affected students were members of the same sorority, which CU officials declined to name. Goussetis said those cases were linked back to Jimmy John's.

She also said the county is now investigating 17 cases of E. coli, but not all are linked to the restaurant.
