The outbreak had dealt with the bacteria (E Coli and Norovirus). E Coli is a bacteria that goes into the lower intestines of the human body. This bacteria doesn’t really harm the body, but makes people have very bad food poisoning. The other Norovirus is a very heavy virus which contains multiple harms dealing with the stomach. Diarrhea, cramps and vomiting may occur.

Chipotle, struggling to make it through this spread has dealt with multiple pay cuts because of the lack of money. How it came out was by a couple workers at the food company. The company has nearly lost $75 Million in the last few months, due to the two problems.

This shows that popular food companies, can not always keep a good look. This isn’t just harming Chipotle looks, it is also hurting other companies from the past. Giving new perspectives on how fast-food places are with the food they are giving out daily to thousands.

The outbreak has not arrived in Colorado. Chipotle is trying to find a solution to the problem. Despite all of the difficulties, Chipotle easily got over a million, even though all the money loss.
