After E. coli and norovirus outbreaks, Chipotle founder promises new food safety practices


[Read the post]


I LURVE Chipotle food, but even I hesitate to get lunch there…


When he infects himself with E. coli I will accept his shitty apology.


Got sick a couple hours after eating at Chipotle once. Once.


That’s all it takes, and then the fun starts…


This is another thing that I don’t get too worked up about–one chain having a series of unfortunate events like this, as opposed to food safety in general. This is a present danger in all food that isn’t pressure cooked and/or irradiated and/or cured.


Particularly when members of your government decide that regulation is the problem, so they force the layoff of most of the inspectors.


Well, that is indeed problematic. How bout just make a strong glass of wine mandatory with each meal.


I wonder if companies not having sick days contributes to this?

I notice that in the USA it is extremely common for people to go to work when clearly unwell - thus infecting all their fellow commuters (in NYC), their co-workers, and anyone else they come into contact with during the day. I work a well-paid, professional job and yet our company provides zero paid sick days per year, they have to come out of PTO - which is half the number of days common in other developed countries.

Maybe a requirement to provide a minimum of 5 paid sick days per year should be law for any company that has their employees in public-facing positions, particularly where they are handing food.
