“Chipotle Mexican Grill is the Bono of the fast-food business.” So says the current issue of the magazine Fast Company. Point of the story is how everybody loves it.
Well, not everybody likes Bono and Chipotle just made a few hundred people sick with norovirus. Or at least that’s what Ohio’s Newsnet 5 is reporting. The TV news service reports:
City, county and state health officials said they suspect the Norwalk virus is to blame for making hundreds of people sick after they ate at a Chipotle restaurant in Kent.
According to Kent health officials, 432 people have reported norovirus symptoms as of Monday afternoon.
Officials said no cases have occurred since the restaurant reopened on Saturday. It had closed on Friday after people were reporting symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and diarrhea after eating there.
The restaurant on Route 59 was cleaned and sanitized and new employees were brought in from other restaurants to work there.
