Chipotle Mexican Grill closed for Critical Foodborne Illness Violations – Update

Posted on July 13, 2015 by


At 4:30PM today, I spoke with Anthony at Chipotle. He said the refrigerator was “clogged” and the employees couldn’t be in there while they were fixing the refrigerator. They re-opened the same day. I hope the refrigerator is consistent now.
