Do you still eat at Chipotle? Even after various outbreaks of E. Coli, salmonella, and norovirus swept across its North American locations? If your answer is yes, you must be a very dedicated Chipotle consumer. Which is why you may want to plan ahead for February 8, when every Chipotle restaurant will close for several hours so that its executives can address food safety concerns with staff. A spokesperson for the Denver-cased fast casual chain discussed the plan with Oregonian reporter Lynn Terry:
If you're really hungry and you only have about five minutes to shove something down your gullet and you're on the corner of Bergen and Smith Streets in Boerum Hill, you might be tempted to run in to Hanco's to grab one of the pre-wrapped packages of shrimp summer rolls that have been sitting, unrefrigerated, on the counter for God knows how long. RESIST.
