Chipotle plans massive employee retraining after foodborne illness source ID'd

The Chipotle Outbreak That Sickened Nearly 650 People Was Caused by This Bacteria

They cracked the case: Local officials have figured out what got hundreds of people ill after eating at a Chipotle location in Delaware County, Ohio.

The outbreak last month was the latest in a series of food safety lapses at the burrito chain, and health officials said it was caused by the clostridium perfringens bacterium, which often infects food that is prepared in large quantities and kept warm for a long time.

However, it was not certain exactly which food caused the illness and testing is still being conducted by the US Centres for Disease Control.

"Once we identified this incident", he said, "we acted quickly to close the Powell restaurant and implemented our food safety response protocols that include total replacement of all food inventory and complete cleaning and sanitization of the restaurant".

He also said restaurants would be adding a "recurring employee knowledge assessment" to their daily food-safety routines.
