Chipotle reopens in Ohio after reports of illnesses

Chipotle reopens in Ohio after reports of illnesses”

Anyone who experienced symptoms of sickness after eating at this Chipotle between July 26-30 is asked to report to the Delaware County Health Department. Initially, it was 2 individuals who posted claims to food-safety website iwasposioned.com, but now that number has increased to more than 170 people since the news was first reportedby Business Insider.

Chipotle Mexican Grill closed a restaurant in Powell, Ohio, on Monday because of a "handful of illness reports" the company said.

Chipotle shut down the Powell restaurant on Monday over reports of customer and employee illnesses.

"We acted quickly and closed this single restaurant out of an abundance of caution and we are working with the local health officials to reopen this restaurant as soon as possible", a spokeswoman said.

Chipotle said it planned to reopen the OH restaurant on Tuesday after it deep cleaned the restaurant and removed all exposed foods and single-use equipment, pending approval from the local health department. Lettuce was not properly cooled and beans were not held at a warm enough temperature.

"A follow up will occur in roughly 3 weeks due to cooling of lettuce", inspection records stated. Chipotle stock fell more than 6% on Tuesday.

The news is another setback to the company, which was recovering from a series of high-profile food safety lapses in 2015 that sickened more than 100 customers and bruised Chipotle's reputation and stock price.

Officials said that an "investigation is ongoing pending lab test results", adding that a "total of 33 stool sample kits were delivered today to persons that reported illness".

Diversified Restaurant Holdings, Inc., a restaurant company, operates Buffalo Wild Wings franchised restaurants in the United States. A sick worker was also believed to be the cause of the Boston outbreak.

The shares had gained 61 per cent this year through the close of regular trading on Monday, mounting a recovery after dropping each of the last three years amid the fallout from multiple outbreaks of foodborne illnesses that began in 2015.

The Delaware General Health District and the fast casual Mexican grill continue to investigate.
