Chipotle Mexican Grill share prices took a near 32- point drop Tuesday.
This is because the company closed a chain in Powell, Ohio Monday when several complaints of food born illness were made.
As of Tuesday over 100 complaints had been filed by people who ate at the Powell branch. This is not Chipotle’s first rodeo with food born illness. Throughout 2015 the chain was responsible for several outbreaks. At least 60 patrons in 14 states who contracted E. Coli from the food. In Boston over 100 people were affected by a norovirus. Also, over 100 people were impacted in California.
The company made a public statement, which reads, “We acted quickly and closed this single restaurant out of an abundance of caution yesterday and we’ve implemented our food safety response protocols that includes a total replacement of all food inventory and complete cleaning and sanitation of the restaurant.”
