Chipotle Closing All Restaurants For A Few Hours To Talk To Employees About E. Coli

After months of being repeatedly kicked in the butt by humiliating outbreaks of E. coli and norovirus outbreaks, Chipotle has decided it’s time to take a short breather to sit down with its employees to talk through this recent crisis.

Last week, we heard chatter on the Chipotle grapevine that stores were being closed for the day on Feb. 8 for some sort of meeting, but that staffers were being given no indication of what might be said. Store closings? Staffing changes? Updates to the menu?

We reached out to Chipotle for comment at the time and received no response. But today the Wall Street Journal confirms that stores will indeed be temporarily shuttered on Feb. 8, if only for a few hours.

Give it up, I will never eat there again.

The more sensible thing to do (and a way to preserve their patronage) is close the restaurants and find out why there's an issue in the first place. I know many people who aren't willing to risk eating there now because they can't afford to get sick.
