It's not a recall, but I read today of an e-coli breakout connected to chipotle, so just wanted to warn everyone.  Might want to stay away from them for a couple weeks till it is straightened out.

Just on the news this afternoon: A Boston Chipotle restaurant linked to a bunch of people getting sick today. I think they are still testing to see what caused it before they call it e-coli.

In my area this warning has been out for sometime now. Still no answers as to what caused it. Several affected.

Heard on the news today that the Boston incident turned out to be Noro virus - the virus that usually causes the mass outbreaks of illness on cruise ships.  So that one was not e-coli.  There have been a couple more incidents of e-coli, though, individual ones in several states.  However, all of the e-coli cases reported were all in November and Chipotle has destroyed all ingredients in all of their restaurants from that time period, and changed some suppliers.  So, hopefully, that will be the end of it and those restaurants will now be safe to eat at.

Same here, the cases in Western Washington happened last month.  One of my students was out for a week sick from eating at one of the restaurants affected.  Scary that they haven't ID'd the problem.

Re on the Boston location turning out to be the milder norovirus- at least 80 people were sickened in a short time span, most are Boston College students.

Update Dec 10...now they say over 140 people sick at this location.
I think the company's reputation has tanked along with their stock...
