Chipotle Stock Plummets After More E. Coli News


By Pork Network Staff

Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. took another hit today – this time in the wallet.

Shares of the restaurant chain’s stock hit a 52-week low Monday after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced five new suspected E. coli cases infecting people in Kansas, North Dakota and Oklahoma, according to media reports.

The CDC said it does not know if the more recent cases are connected to the outbreak linked to Chipotle in late October which affected 53 people, according to media reports. The first cases were reported primarily in Washington and Oregon. Twenty people were hospitalized in that outbreak, according to reports.

  I agree it is poetic justice. The U.S. has always been the first in humane treatment of animals, but not according to Ellis Ellis needs to be clearly informed before he speaks. He reminds me of our president.

  Call it karma or poetic justice the fact remains that Steve Ells and Chipolte should have practiced what they preached by employing food safety standards to begin with instead of after the fact. They meaning Ells and Chipolte should have expended their time and resources toward making food safety the priority instead of demeaning and possibly destroying modern day agriculture. A perfect example of this was the television series Farmed and Dangerous. Most Americans would respect and truly appreciate what modern day agriculture achieve's for the good of all if they are presented with the truth.
