For the seventh time in just two years, popular Mexican quick service
restaurant chain, Chipotle Mexican Grill has a food contamination crisis
on its hands. According to the Delaware General Health Department and a
lawsuit filed this week in Ohio by national consumer rights law firm
DiCello Levitt & Casey and food safety law firm Ron Simon & Associates,
a late July food poisoning outbreak at a Chipotle location in Powell,
Ohio sickened as many as 200 patrons and employees who ate at the
restaurant on July 29 and 30.
“It’s extraordinary that this is the seventh outbreak caused by Chipotle
in recent years,” said Mark A. DiCello, a partner at DiCello Levitt &
Casey. “Through this lawsuit and with the dozens of claims we are
investigating, we will determine where and how Chipotle once again
failed to protect its customers. This has become far too routine at
Chipotle, and ultimately we want to make sure that the company doesn’t
let this happen again.”
The initial lawsuit was filed on behalf of Filip Szyller, who visited
Chipotle’s location at 9733 Sawmill Parkway in Powell, Ohio on July 29
and subsequently became ill with a fever, diarrhea, nausea, headaches,
fatigue and hot and cold flashes.
A Consumer Food Safety Claim Line has been established to assist victims
in the outbreak. It may be reached toll-free at 1-888-778-8880.

A copy of the complaint is available upon request and Mr. DiCello is
available for media comment.
