Illness at Ohio Chipotle outlet caused by bacteria

This was the culprit of Chipotle’s latest foodborne outbreak

This was the culprit of Chipotle’s latest foodborne outbreak

Local health officials said a bacterium known as Clostridium perfringens caused the outbreak.

Chipotle says it will retrain all restaurant employees on food safety procedures after OH heath officials said tests tied to one store came back positive for an illness that occurs when food is left at unsafe temperatures.

Chipotle will begin retraining all employees in safe food-handling procedures next week after a health department determined the pathogen that sickened almost 700 customers in OH arose from food left at unsafe temperatures, the fast-casual chain announced Thursday. As of now, no specific food item has been named.

Chipotle's leadership will retrain all restaurant employees about food safety and wellness protocols nationwide starting next week, the company told Reuters via email. "To ensure consistent food safety execution, we will be adding to our daily food safety routines a recurring employee knowledge assessment of our rigorous food safety standards".

Sony Announces 3 Million PlayStation VR Headsets Have Been Sold To Gamers
In addition to 3 million in sales of the hardware, Sony said it has sold 21.9 million games and "experiences" for the device. One of the games is a VR boxing experience that is based on the Creed movie that fits into the Rocky universe.

Though not as severe as Chipotle's food safety lapses in 2015 that sickened customers with E. coli and salmonella, the outbreak in OH is a headache for CEO Brian Niccol, who has been trying to fix Chipotle's reputation.

The source of the outbreak that sickened almost 650 people at a Chipotle in OH last month has been identified. No customers have reported getting sick after eating the restaurant since it reopened.

Chipotle shares reversed course to fall 3.8 percent on Thursday afternoon after hitting a two-year high earlier.

Business Insider reported last month that Chipotle temporarily closed the restaurant at the center of the outbreak, at 9733 Sawmill Parkway in Powell, on July 30 after receiving reports of customer illnesses. "Examples are proper handwashing, proper hot and cold temperatures, cooking and prep procedures, etcetera".
