December 21, 2015 — The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is investigating another outbreak of E. coli at Chipotle restaurants.
The agency said another, more recent outbreak of a different rare strain of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli O26 had been linked to Chipotle. It is unknown if the illnesses are linked to a larger outbreak that peaked in October.
Five new illnesses were reported in three states: Kansas (1), North Dakota (1), and Oklahoma (3). Illness onset sates range from November 18-26, 2015. All five victims reported eating at Chipotle in the week before getting sick.
The larger ongoing outbreak has sickened at lest 53 people in nine states, including 20 people who were hospitalized and 46 (88%) who reported eating at Chipotle before getting sick.
Earlier this month, an outbreak of Norovirus sickened at least 140 people in Boston — many of them college students. Chipotle has been sued by the mother of a 16 year-old boy who got sick, according to the Boston Globe.
In September, there were two major food poisoning outbreaks at Chipotle. An outbreak of Norovirus sickened about 80 customers and 18 employees at a Chipotle restaurant in Simi Valley, California. In Minnesota, at least 60 people were sickened with Salmonella after eating meals at Chipotle that contained contaminated tomatoes.
