E.coli Outbreak Linked to Chipotle Restaurants in Washington, Oregon

Filed November 4th, 2015 Lillian

An E.coli outbreak has been linked to Chipotle restaurants in Washington state and Oregon. The number of infections related to the outbreak is expected to grow, according to health officials. NBC News reports that 22 people have become sick from E coli as of Friday: three in the Portland area and 19 in western Washington. Seventeen of these individuals had eaten at Chipotle in recent weeks. There have been no deaths thus far, but eight people have been hospitalized.

Marisa D’Angeli, medical epidemiologist with the Washington State Department of Health, says the number of sick people will probably increase because more individuals will go see their doctors as the outbreak becomes more publicized. “We actually would expect there might be a jump in cases on Monday,” she said, according to NBC News. Any individual who has eaten at Chipotle since mid-October and experiences intestinal symptoms should see their doctor, D’Angeli advised. She also said bloody diarrhea warrants a doctor’s visit regardless of whether a person has eaten Chipotle.

The exact source of the E.coli has yet to be determined; its possible that it came from a fresh food product delivered to Chipotle and other places. “We’re very early in the investigation,” D’Angeli said, according to NBC News. She stated that Chipotle has been cooperating with the investigation. The restaurant voluntarily shut down all its restaurants in Oregon and Washington.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will test samples of food from Chipotle and compare food bacteria to samples from people who had E.coli. Currently, Chipotle is not looking to close restaurants in other states.
