Chipotl-e.coli: new diet food trend

Huzzah! Even though February 8th is not a holiday, maybe it should be!  Chipotle maybe starting a new “day awareness” day.

Apparently, Since October 2015, over 50 people have gotten E.coli from eating those baby sized burritos at the local Chipotle.  As a result, the very quick to over-react chain is closing every shop for one day in order to hold a national all-employee meeting addressing the company’s plans to stop the E.coli outbreak from their stores. It seems those signs they have in the employee bathrooms just aren’t doing the trick.

Nice use of “quotations”



When you get called out… Carl is just gross



So no washing requirements after a #1?
The “restaurant’s” troubles have continued since then as well. Chipotle stock dropped 42%, down from $750 to $428 a share (that’s almost 1/2! may be a good time to get in on some stock that will probably bounce back when they get this little bug worked out).

So 1 day without the risk of diarrhea or vomiting seems like a fair trade.  And if it means we can resume the binge/over-eating we are all used to… I guess we can all eat at Taco Bell for the day… long live the enchirito!
