Chipotle under fed scrutiny after more illnesses

From Nation's Restaurant News
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is investigating yet another, more recent outbreak of E. coli tied to Chipotle Mexican Grill that has sickened five people in Kansas, North Dakota and Oklahoma, officials said Monday.  
The illnesses were caused by a different, rare DNA fingerprint of Shiga toxin-producing E. coli 026, or STEC 026, but it is not known whether the infections are related to the larger outbreak of STEC 026 that has sickened 53 people in nine states, including a new case reported in Pennsylvania, although that person did not eat at a Chipotle restaurant before falling ill on November 14, the CDC said.
