Update: Chipotle E. Coli Outbreak Spreads to 6 States, More than 40 Sickened

November 22, 2015 – At least 45 people in 6 states have been infected with an outbreak strain of E. coli 026 linked to food from Chipotle restaurants, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). This marks the 3rd food poisoning outbreak of the year for Chipotle [1], a company that prides itself on “food with integrity.”

What’s the problem?

July 29, 2010 – This week, the FDA announced a recall for over 2000 cases of poblano peppers packaged at the Pasco Processing, LLC in Washington. The items in question were suspected of listeria contamination which had been detected in a sample of the product.

The peppers were produced as Corn and Poblano peppers with product codes sold to food distributors that then resold them to three Chipotle Mexican Grill restaurants in California, Nevada, & Arizona.

The FDA reports there are at least 1600 cases of listeriosis – with a 25% fatality rate – annually in the United States.
Most listeria infections are mild; however, it can lead to life-threatening complications including septicemia and meningitis.

Pregnant women are particularly susceptible, as the CDC sites that 30% of those infections occur in mothers-to-be. Listeria infections in unborn babies can result in miscarriages, stillbirth, premature birth, the potential of fatal infection after birth, long-term neurological damage, and delayed development.
