Chipotle Mexican Grill to Tighten Food Safety Standards

I've always considered McDonald's to be the world's safest place to eat because of the 
relatively small number of closely controlled suppliers. The idea of a large restaurant 
chain "sourcing locally" sounded risky - and for Chipotle it has been.

In addition, Chipotle does not have an army of locally based franchisees helping to keep 
an eye on the suppliers, it all has to be done from the corporate office(s).

Always got indigestion when I ate at Chipotle. Now I know why.

I've never gotten ill at Chipotle (or any other restaurant) but I am one of those who
sits down with that huge burrito telling myself I'll eat half and save half for later.
A few minutes later all I have is the foil wrapper.

Boston College said Tuesday the number of students complaining of gastrointestinal symptoms after eating at a Chipotle this weekend has climbed to 80, up from the 30 it reported the previous day. I guess I'm not alone!

Former McDonald's VPs Pat Flynn and John Charlesworth still sit on the Chipolte board of directors.

Good for Pepto Bismol sales.

Instead of sitting on the board, they may be sitting on the "john".

Took years for Jack in the Box to recover from a similar event.
