It has been reported that Chipotle's shares took a big hit on Monday after television star Jeremy Jordan said he got extremely sick after eating a burrito. In particular, the stock declined by as much as 6 percent to $263. It was recently off 1.6 percent at $275. As of Friday, Chipotle's shares were off 26 percent this year due to an outbreak earlier this year.
The performer posted an account of his ordeal Thursday night in an Instagram story. He claimed that he was being hospitalized and blamed his extreme sickness on an otherwise tasty Chipotle meal, which he had at a Houston location.
“I, as you can see, am in the hospital and I have fluids in my arm because the food did not agree with me and I almost died,” Jordan wrote, according to the Daily Post.
The restaurant has recently stated that they are skeptical of the performer's story, although they are very sorry to hear that he is sick.
They said, “We were sorry to hear Jeremy was sick and were able to get in touch with him directly regarding where and when he ate. There have been no other reported claims of illness at the restaurant where he dined. We take all claims seriously, but we can’t confirm any link to Chipotle given the details he shared with us.”
Despite Chipotle's doubts about the performer's claim, Jordan is sticking to his guns.
“I know I’ve advocated for them in the past, but they’re terrible,” declared Jordan.
