Chipotle Shuts Down Ohio Restaurant After Reports Of Illness Outbreak

Another Chipotle Is Closed After Customers Complain of Getting Sick

Comparatively, Chipotle Mexican Grill has a beta of 0.5, indicating that its stock price is 50% less volatile than the S&P 500.

Reports of food poisoning led a Chipotle restaurant near Columbus, Ohio, to close entirely on Monday.

More than 100 people said they had fallen sick after eating at a Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc (CMG.N) restaurant in OH, sending shares of the burrito chain down as much as 9 percent on Tuesday.

"Our protocols identified a handful of illness reports at one restaurant in Powell, OH", Chipotle spokeswoman Laurie Schalow told CNBC. Steve Ells, then the company's CEO, said Chipotle "isolated the failure that occurred", and that the Sterling issue was related to a restaurant failing to comply with its procedures to prevent norovirus.

As of Tuesday morning, 105 Illnesses with symptoms such as nausea and diarrhea were reported on the website iwaspoisoned.com, suggesting that more than 170 customers have fallen sick after eating at a Powell, Ohio, Chipotle since Sunday, according to Patrick Quade, the website's founder. Chipotle management said it was unable to get in touch with the health department to report the illnesses. "We are not aware of any confirmed food borne illness cases, and we are cooperating with the local health department". Accern also gave news stories about the restaurant operator an impact score of 45.762239272966 out of 100, meaning that recent press coverage is somewhat unlikely to have an impact on the stock's share price in the near term.

Barr also addressed Jarrett directly and apologized for the tweets, advocating for a broader dialogue on race relations. Although it was looked upon by many as a racist tweet , Barr insisted otherwise, calling it "political".


Chipotle voluntarily closed the Sawmill Parkway location Monday.

Although there is now no indication that the outbreak has affected consumers in other states, Chipotle's stock fell almost 4 percent after news of the closing of the Powell location.

Chipotle voluntarily closed the OH restaurant Monday for deep cleaning and removal of all exposed foods and single-use equipment, the company said.

Addressing food safety concerns is among the top priorities for Chipotle Chief Executive Officer Brian Niccol, who took the helm in March.
