WARNING: Chipotle Linked To Second Outbreak of E. Coli
Chipotle has had a rough time with food outbreaks in recent months. Earlier this month, health officials in Boston closed down a location after an outbreak of norovirus caused at least 140 cases of gastrointestinal illness. In September 2015, health officials in Minnesota identified tomatoes as the cause of an outbreak of Salmonella linked to the chain.
The CDC is investigating five new cases of a rare strain of E. coli linked to Chipotle Mexican Grill, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday.
Three of the ill individuals ate at a location in Oklahoma and two ate at a Kansas location. Their symptoms began between November 18 and November 26 and all the individuals had consumed food from Chipotle within a week of becoming ill.
