E. coli and other news

Chipotle closes 43 restaurants in E. coli breakout, website reports


Chipotle has closed 43 of its chain restaurants in Washington and Oregon because of an E. coli bacteria outbreak, ABC News reported Sunday (Nov. 1).

Health officials in both states were investigating cases of E. coli that appeared to be linked to the restaurant chain: three people were sickened in Oregon and at least 19 in Washington, a third of whom were hospitalized, according to the report.
