151102102055-chipotle-e-coli-outbreak-alesci-vo-newsroom-00011818-full-169E. coli outbreaks linked to Chipotle restaurants have sickened at least 58 people across several states, including problems in Oklahoma. (12/21/15 Update from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.) CDC has an ongoing investigation. Food and Drug Administration investigators are also searching for the cause of the E. coli outbreaks, which began in October and November. “Nothing has been ruled out as a root cause,” said an FDA’s health communications specialist: “We continue discussions with Chipotle officials. They are sharing with us how they plan to address food safety in their restaurants.”
Hundreds of Chipotle’s customers were victims of confirmed food borne illness outbreaks in the second half of 2015. States involved so far are: Minnesota, California, Illinois, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Washington, Kansas, and Oklahoma.
Chipotle executives tell the news media — “we believe this is over” and “we have implemented changes” — the founder told attendees at the annual ICR Conference on Jan. 13.
