December 22, 2017 — The Los Angeles Health Department is investigating several reports of people who fell ill with nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea after eating at the Chipotle Mexican Grill locate at 4550 W. Pico Blvd.
Chipotle said it is aware of 3 reports of food poisoning on a user-generated website, but they have not been contacted by any of the victims and the illnesses have not been clinically confirmed.
According to one of the reports:
“My whole family and I ate at Chipotle 2 days before we started experiencing stomach pains and nausea. It was constant vomiting every 2 hours and weakness. We all had burrito bowls with meat, beans, rice, and quac. The symptoms lasted for 2 days now.”
Chipotle has implemented heightened sanitization measures at the restaurant where the illnesses were reported, as is company policy.
Health officials in Los Angeles did not say what type of illness is under investigation. Chipotle has struggled to bounce back after several outbreaks of E. coli, Salmonella, and Norovirus sickened people throughout the United States in 2015. None of the victims died, but several were hospitalized with severe illnesses.
