Over 130 People Report Getting Sick After Eating at Virginia Chipotle

Chipotle says it's already reopened the Virginia restaurant that yesterday became an embarrassing source of food-safety déjà vu for the chain.

Chipotle's executive director of food safety, Jim Mardsen, said in a statement to Business Insider, "We are working with health authorities to understand what the cause may be and to resolve the situation as quickly as possible". While the restaurant was closed, multiple teams performed complete sanitizations of all surfaces.

A spokesman from Chipotle released a statement that it was safe to eat at the chain and the outbreak was consistent with norovirus, which does not come from the company food supply.

On Monday, the Sterling restaurant closed, and news of the outbreak caused the Chipotle stock to plummet by 7% on Tuesday. "The shares were trading at almost $750 before the company's previous food-safety incidents, which battered the chain's profits and reputation", according to Reuters.

The Mayo Clinic states that norovirus symptoms can appear 12 to 48 hours after exposure to the virus and can last up to three days.

While he isn't certain that the restaurant was the cause of the illnesses, Goodfriend said people were associating their symptoms with the chain.

To recover its credibility with customers and improve its tarnished food safety record, Chipotle temporarily closed more than 2,000 restauant locations to re-train employees about food safety in February 2016. It outlined a number of steps it has taken since an E. coli outbreak, such as the creation of a food safety council and the implementation of additional food handling and preparation procedures. Website iwaspoisoned.com showed 133 people reported being sick after eating at the Chipotle location.

Norovirus cases aren't rare.

Boston health officials linked a norovirus outbreak that sickened more than 120 college students in 2015 to the restaurant and, in the same year, about 207 people in Simi Valley, California, also fell ill.

Wednesday morning, the company's stocks continued its downturn with its pre-market share price down 1.2 percent.

The site received eight reports directly but, so far, a total of 13 customers have reported illness between July 14 and July 15.
