It looks as though Chipotle is allowing us to recycle the old cartoon above. They’re back in the news again with more tainted burritos. To deal with this problem once and for all, we suggest a name change. Get the ecoli out of Chipotle. The name would then become hpt. Or as we’d call it, High Protein Toxins.
The GMO-conscious Chipotle restaurants have been recently linked to an outbreak of e coli bacteria infections in as many as 52 people in 9 states across the country as of Friday, 12/4/15. Perhaps the restaurant chain should spend more time working on pathogen avoidance which we know are deadly, instead of GMO’s which have shown no proven harmful effects. Even with the admitted lack of effects, the FDA already regulates food derived through biotechnology such as GMO’s. Personally, we’d rather have e coli-free burritos. You can keep your GMO hysteria.
