SABOTAGE: Chipotle Under Attack In Food-Poisoning Claim

Chipotle is under attack.

Ever since the company took on a non GMO stance they have fought multiple attacks on their supply chain and brand.

The latest smear attempt has come from an unconfirmed Tweet claiming food poisoning according to this Business Insider report:

Chipotle’s stock is falling, after two tweets about another potential E. coli incident at the chain.

The burrito chain’s stock fell as much as 3.5% on Thursday morning, after a Twitter user reported that someone had gotten sick after eating at a Manhattan location of the chain.

“My editor ended up in urgent care after being deathly ill all night from eating at Chipotle’s,” reads the tweet, from Eric Van Lustbader.

Van Lustbader further said that his editor spent seven hours in the emergency room, with doctors surmising that the illness could be traced to unsanitary food handling.

Some Twitter users, noting the drop in Chipotle stock, accused Van Lustbader of attempting to disparage Chipotle and purposefully influence the market. He defended himself, saying he was simply discussing his friend’s health, calling the fall in Chipotle’s stock an unintended consequence he had not even considered.

While it appears that a single tweet was responsible for the stock’s original drop, another Twitter user replied to the tweet to report a similar incident.

The illness is at this time unconfirmed, with no official reports of Chipotle-related illnesses.

“We are aware of the post made on Twitter, however there have been no reports of illnesses at any of our New York restaurants,” Chipotle spokesperson Chris Arnold told Business Insider. “Moreover, we have excellent health department scores throughout the city, and we continue to have the highest standards of food safety in our restaurants.”
