Chipotle shuts OH restaurant after reports of illness

Posting on a crowdsourcing site is not the correct protocol for reporting food poisoning incidents, Delaware General Health District's Whittaker said.

The company's stock was trading at about $437 on Tuesday, which is up about 50% from the start of the year but still down more than 40% from pre-crisis levels. Initially, it was 2 individuals who posted claims to food-safety website iwasposioned.com, but now that number has increased to more than 170 people since the news was first reportedby Business Insider.

Officials said that an "investigation is ongoing pending lab test results", adding that a "total of 33 stool sample kits were delivered today to persons that reported illness".

The chain has been struggling with food-safety issues since 2015, and has since implemented safety standards and food-handling procedures in hopes of preventing similar occurrences.

"We take all claims of food safety very seriously and we are now looking into a few reports of illness at our Powell, Ohio restaurant", Chipotle spokeswoman Laurie Schalow told Business Insider.

Traci Whittaker, a public information officer, said the department wasn't aware of the pathogen that caused the illnesses, according to Reuters. The plaintiff said he is still receiving medical treatment.

"We acted quickly and closed this single restaurant out of an abundance of caution yesterday".

Health officials then discussed the illness complaints with the company and discovered that Chipotle had also received four to five illness complaints from customers. Finally, Bank of America boosted their price target on shares of Chipotle Mexican Grill from $310.00 to $350.00 and gave the company an "underperform" rating in a research note on Tuesday, June 26th. Chipotle management said it was unable to get in touch with the health department to report the illnesses. Wells Fargo & Company MN now owns 92,320 shares of the restaurant operator's stock valued at $29,830,000 after purchasing an additional 1,907 shares during the period.
