Food recalls and illness outbreaks have been horrible news for consumers across the nation. Now, another food safety outbreak is hitting one of the most popular fast food places for Mexican food: Chipotle.
"Chipotle told CNBC Tuesday morning that the health department received two illness complaints, but by Tuesday afternoon the Delaware General Health District reported receiving 'over 100 calls and climbing,'" reported CNBC.
A Chipotle restaurant in Ohio was even closed after the news of the outbreak. Investigators are now working to determine exactly what caused customers to get sick and if there is any other threat to customers in other locations.
"We acted quickly and closed this single restaurant out of an abundance of caution and we are working with the local health officials to reopen this restaurant as soon as possible," said Chipotle spokeswoman Laurie Schalow.
Now, things are really starting to escalate. Reports are claiming that over 700 people have been infected by eating at the restaurant. It is the worst food outbreak yet.
Now, the company is doing everything they can to entice customers to come back to the restaurant. While some people are concerned about their health, others think they will be just fine and continue to eat the delicious food.
The official Twitter for Chipotle is reaching out to people online as well.
