Guacamol-e.coli Is Extra! Chipotle Closes 43 Stores Amid E. Coli Scare
Sorry Chipotle lovers in Washington State and Oregon. The Mexican food chain has temporarily closed 43 locations in the two states due to caution amid an outbreak of the E. coli virus that was found to be linked to its restaurant.
The Washington Department of Health released this tweet as a warning Friday evening:
E. coli has been reported from eating at Chipotle restaurants in WA and OR. https://t.co/YwM0lNszg2

Luckily no one has died in the reported cases of infection, and seven of the Washington patients and one Oregon patient were hospitalized.
Be safe burrito bowl obsessors.
