Chipotle closes 43 restaurants following E. coli outbreak

Chipotle Mexican Grill shut 43 restaurants in Oregon and Washington states following an outbreak of E.coli linked to at least 22 cases, a Chipotle spokesman said Monday.

Regulators said over the weekend they found 19 cases of infection in Washington state and three in Oregon. One third of the infected people were hospitalized and there were no fatalities, the Oregon Health Authority said.
Typical cases usually develop diarrhea and abdominal cramps within 1-10 days, with most illnesses resolving on their own within seven days.
