If there was ever a state that deserved food poisoning, it would be Ohio. As far as I’m concerned, Chipotle is doing us a public service by sickening the people of Ohio — making them weaker so they could expire faster. An ideal country would be people on the coast and no one else in the middle. Actually, we could keep our trash and food there, maybe mix up the two in order to be efficient and green. Right now we only keep our human trash in the middle; but eventually all of those people will either die off by shooting each other, or they’ll need to move due to lack of jobs.
When the come to the coast, us Northerners can give them sales gigs, teach them to ditch their hokey accents and give up on the idea that they were ever the ‘heartland’ of America. Truth be told, America started with 13 colonies. If there is a heartland — it’s here, in the Northeast corridor where the weather is brisk and the people are smart.
Back to CMG:
Chipotle Mexican Grill said tests confirmed bacteria caused a recent outbreak of illness at an Ohio restaurant that sickened hundreds.
Clostridium perfringens was named the culprit, tests from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention confirmed. Leaving food out at unsafe temperatures causes the foodborne disease.
Chipotle said a specific food has not been identified as a source. CEO Brian Niccol said leadership will retrain all restaurant employees about food safety and wellness protocols nationwide starting next week.
Health staff identified 647 people who said they experienced gastrointestinal symptoms after eating at the Chipotle on Sawmill Parkway between July 26 and July 30.
On this news, stock is barely changed and up terrifically for the year.
