The Chipotle E. Coli Outbreak Is Spreading

The Chipotle E. Coli Outbreak Is Spreading

I tried to warn you all that Chipotle sucks. It’s salty, unhealthy, overpriced fast food, and now you’re all paying the price for ordering your $9 steak bowls. People all over the country are getting E. coli from eating at Chipotle, and I’m going to try my best not to tell you “I told you so.”

So far, 45 people have gotten sick with E. coli and 26 are in the hospital. The states that have been affected are Washington, Oregon, California, Minnesota, New York, and Ohio.


No one knows which specific ingredient or order has caused this outbreak, but I think it’s safe to say that Chipotle is now off-limits unless an extended hospital stay is something you see in your future. Now do your taste buds a favor and get your Mexican fix at an actual restaurant that serves queso con chorizo. You deserve it.
