  • ChipotleLed by price hikes and queso add-ons Chipotle’s same-store sales surged 3.3 percent in the second quarter of fiscal 2018

At least 140 people said they had fallen sick after eating at a Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc restaurant in OH, sending shares of the burrito chain down as much as 9 percent on Tuesday. On Tuesday, shares of Chipotle were down more than 7 percent, to around $432, in afternoon trading.

Chipotle said the restaurant would reopen on Tuesday, pending approval from the local health department.

The health district said it is still investigating while it awaits the test results.

Chipotle told health officials that two to five staff members called off work due to illness on July 29 and 30, Business Insider reported on Tuesday, but the company did not confirm this to Reuters.

Local health records available online indicate that restaurant inspectors visited the oh restaurant, located about 18 miles north of Columbus, on July 26 and found lettuce and beans that weren't stored at the proper temperature. The restaurant corrected the violations during the same visit, according to the health inspection report.

The store in Powell, Ohio, was closed Monday after customers posted complaints on Iwaspoisoned.com, according to the Columbus Dispatch. County health officials said in a statement on Tuesday that the number of people who have reported getting ill at the restaurant has jumped to 368. He started the site after getting sick at a NY deli.

The investigation is still in the infant stages, and general health public information officer Traci Whittaker says she can not say what exactly happened until lab results come back.

Chipotle has been trying to overcome a tarnished reputation tied to multiple food safety incidents at its restaurants. "This has become far too routine at Chipotle, and ultimately we want to make sure that the company doesn't let this happen again".

After falling for three consecutive years, the Chipotle's shares had spiked 61 percent in 2018 prior to the news of the illnesses in Ohio. Zacks Investment Research upgraded shares of Chipotle Mexican Grill from a "hold" rating to a "buy" rating and set a $512.00 price target on the stock in a research report on Monday, July 16th. The additional reports came after the district initially said that seven people were sickened after apparently eating at the restaurant.
