Chipotle’s E. coli outbreak continues to spread.
Chipotle is ending 2015 on a bad note. Earlier this year, the Mexican fast food chain got some fame when it announced Chipotle will pay for their employees’ tuition or when the company revealed their Guacamole recipe. Basically, everyone loved Chipotle. Even when reports suggested that Chipotle is making people fat, people didn’t care and ordered even more Guacamole, extra beans, extra rice, and double meat.
However, Chipotle is having a major E. coli problem and it has reportedly spread for a third time.
According to Grub Street, the Chipotle E. coli outbreak has spread form six takes affected to nine. They now include Oregon, Washington, California, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Illinois, Maryland, and Pennsylvania. In fact, 52 people have been infected, however, only 47 of them at a Chipotle restaurant a week before experiencing symptoms. “Illnesses started on dates ranging from October 19, 2015, to November 13, 2015,” the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention states.
This Chipotle E. coli outbreak has affected business. Reuters reports shares fell nearly 8 percent after Chipotle estimated sales dropped 11 percent in the last three months.
