Chipotle Mexican Grill in Sterling, Virginia shut down today due to yet
anouther outbreak of illness among Chipotle customers. Since 2015, Chipotle
has experienced multiple closures because of foodborne illness outbreaks,
including repeated outbreaks of E. coli, salmonella and norovirus. Since
then, Chipotle has struggled to restore its image among consumers.
The most recent shut down follows a spate of illnesses by customers who
recently ordered food from the Sterling, Virginia location. According
to the company's executive director of food safety, health officials
were notified and the restaurant closed to conduct a full sanitation of
the facility. The closure is not expected to last very long.
According to the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), norovirus usually develops within 12 to 48 hours after exposure and lasts
about three days. The most common symptoms usually include diarrhea, vomiting,
nausea and stomach pain; other symptoms are fever, headache and body aches.
The most dangerous complication is dehydration. Although most victims
generally recover with no long-term problems, nororvirus is especially
dangerous and sometimes fatal for young children, older adults, and people
with compromised immune systems.
